SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

A boy died after being pulled from the ocean in Seaside.

Seaside officials said lifeguards spotted two boys in need of help in the water around 3:30 p.m. Thursday. 

U.S. Coast Guard and Seaside Fire & Rescue crews rescued one boy from the water a short time later. The second boy was pulled from the water after being spotted from the air by a Coast Guard helicopter.

Both boys were taken to a Seaside hospital. The first child was flown to a Portland hospital for further treatment. Seaside officials confirmed Friday that the second boy died.

He had been underwater for quite some time when he was found.

Officials said they will release more details as soon as they are available.
