SANDY, Ore. (AP) - A memorial service is being held Wednesday for the 9-year-old girl who died in a cave-in on a Lincoln City beach.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/S4GWhW ) the service for Isabel Grace Franks of Sandy is at 5 p.m. at the Abundant Life Church in Sandy.

The first rescuer on the scene Friday, Capt. Jim Kusz of North Lincoln Fire and Rescue, says she was buried about five minutes and had suffocated by the time she was dug out.

The girl and other children had dug a hole nearly 5 feet deep. Witnesses say the sand caved in when Isabel sat down to see how deep it was.
