NESKOWIN, Ore. (AP) - A Coast Guard helicopter crew has rescued a man injured in a logging accident near the north Oregon coast community of Neskowin.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Jonathan Klingenberg says the Astoria-based crew flew about 60 miles Tuesday, hoisted the man aboard the chopper and took him to a hospital in Lincoln City.

Local emergency responders had been unable to reach the man due to his location.

The Coast Guard spokesman says the man was reported in stable condition when he was transferred to the care of local emergency medical workers. He was not identified.
