Authorities say a dead hiker whose body was recovered this week was likely killed by a cougar, marking the first fatal attack by a wild cougar in Oregon and the second in the Pacific Northwest this year.
Search and rescue teams found the body of Diana Bober, 55, on Monday off a trail in the Mount Hood National Forest in Welches, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southeast of Portland. Her body was several miles from where searchers found her car last week near a ranger station.
Bober, an avid hiker who often trekked in the Mount Hood and Columbia River Gorge area, was last heard from by family and friends on Aug. 29. She was reported missing on Friday and it's still unclear when she started her hike, said Sgt. Brian Jensen of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.
Sneaker wave on Oregon Coast kills couple who had just immigrated from China
A wave hit two recent immigrants from China as they visited the Oregon Coast, sweeping them out into the ocean and killing them.
Miaochan Chen, 49, and Wenjun Zhu, 41, from Lake Oswego, Oregon, perished on Sunday but their 10-year-old daughter was unharmed, Capt. Tim Fox of the Oregon State Police said Monday.
The family had been picnicking near Depoe Bay when they took a trail down to rocks overlooking the ocean. A wave washed over the rocks, engulfing the couple.
A Coast Guard helicopter and boat searched, and they were found and helicoptered from the ocean to a nearby state park. Life saving measures were attempted as they were driven by ambulance to a hospital, but they succumbed to their injuries.
The family immigrated in July. A state agency placed their daughter into a local foster home.
На новом месте надо осторожней конечно быть,
привычные правила жизни не всегда работают.
Лейк Осуего очень, очень прекрасное место, недоступно дорогое
для трудящихся людей, гораздо лучше Чикаго для жизни, и даже смерть вот какая,
романтическая можно сказать, но лучше не надо.
