CANNON BEACH, Oregon (CNN) -- A Seattle teen-ager is recovering from injuries suffered when he fell 30 feet from slippery rocks into shallow surf on the Oregon coast.
Patrick Bryan, 16, fell as he was climbing with his father Sunday afternoon.
It took a Coast Guard rescue swimmer and a helicopter four tries to lift the injured boy into the helicopter, which took him to a hospital.
Bryan suffered broken bones in both his feet, but a hospital official said he was in good condition.
