DEPOE BAY, Ore. (AP) — 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.
