On the beach

The scene on the beach at twilight, shortly before the fireworks show. Seaside Fire and Rescue, police and others responded to three serious injuries and many other incidents over the holiday.

Seaside Fire and Rescue reported 24 calls on the Fourth of July, three with “very serious” injuries.

Chief Joey Daniels said the incidents included a fireworks hand injury; a burned child; and an unresponsive person on the Prom. All of the injuries were entered into the trauma system. The hand injury and burned child required Life Flight to Portland.

In addition, the department received numerous medical calls like broken arms and other injuries or accidents, Daniels said. “We also had several water rescues on the beach.”
