Rockaway Beach, Oregon – New lifesaving equipment rescued two 12-year-old boys at Rockaway Beach. Kamren and Dallin were about waist deep in the water when they were swept out about a hundred yards by a rip current Monday evening. Family members jumped in to try and save them. Bridgette Gustin was able to get the life jackets around the two boys, but they couldn’t get back to shore. That’s when the Rockaway Fire Department used for the first time a brand new rescue tool, it’s called EMILY, which stands for “Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard”.  It’s a battery powered remote controlled boat. It saved four people including two family members who tried rescuing the boys.
