Two people from Umatilla have been rescued at the Columbia River by the crew of the 'Ryn Point' on Sep 11, 2018, after their boat overturned, leaving them in cold, rough waters. The Morrow County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) received a call from the US Coast Guard around 6 p.m., of two people in the water clinging to an overturned boat. The crew of the 'Ryan Point' spotted the incident despite choppy, difficult to see conditions. They pulled aboard the victims Derek Alan Ness, 38, and Laurie Dawn Merrell, 47, who were hypothermic and extremely weak from being in the rough waters for three hours. They were taken to the Tidewater dock in Boardman. Medics took the two boaters to two waiting ambulances and the firefighters and the tugboat crew took the small boat to shore and back on to its trailer.
