YACHATS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say crews have recovered the body of a second teenager who was swept off a rocky outcropping into the Pacific Ocean.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says 17-year-old Jack Harnsongkram's body was found Sunday morning. The body of 18-year-old Connor Gregory Ausland was recovered a day ago, hours after both were swept away.

Hastings says a wave knocked the two into the ocean Saturday while they were at the south end of Smelt Sands State Park near Yachats (Yah-hots).

Friends were not able to help them, and both subsequently drowned.
