OCEAN SHORES — Police say a highly intoxicated man passed out on the beach Saturday at Ocean Shores, alarming bystanders.
One thought he had stopped breathing and started CPR. KBKW reports this awakened and startled the man who jumped up and ran into the surf.
He was checked by paramedics. A police officer gave him a ride to his motel and left him in the care of his girlfriend.
Two minutes later the girlfriend called 911 and reported her boyfriend had fallen off their second-story balcony.
He was found unconscious in the grass behind the motel and taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen.
