California hiker found dead after falling off Oregon cliff, swept into ocean: police
Police in Oregon say that a 25-year-old man from California was found dead on Sunday after falling off a cliff.
The Oregon State Police said in a statement on Monday that Henry Minh Hoang was hiking past a safety fence on Saturday at Cape Kiwanda State Natural when he slipped and fell about 20 feet to the water's edge.
His body was found on the shoreline at the bottom of a nearby cliff on Monday at 4:30 p.m., police said.
"The victim was reportedly knocked unconscious from the fall and was swept into the ocean by the waves. Witnesses lost sight of the victim and the rescue operation later transitioned into a likely recovery operation," the Oregon State Police said.
