Woman Drowned While On Coquille River

COOS COUNTY, Ore. — A woman is dead after drowning in Coos County on Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office says 25-year-old Kristle Volin was working on the Coquille River. She was working with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, scouting the river for possible restoration areas.

Volin and a partner were on pontoons when a fallen tree capsized her boat. The sheriff office says her life jacket got snagged and kept her from escaping.
