Search suspended for fisherman off coast
A Coast Guard helicopter from Astoria and boats from Westport searched more than 91 square miles for more than seven hours before the search was suspended Wednesday.
Petty Officer Nathan Bradshaw said the 56-year-old man fell into the water about 1:30 a.m. while setting crab pots from the Westport-based vessel Senja.
He was not wearing a life jacket when he landed in the 48-degree water.
