Park Rangers requested a Coast Guard helicopter rescue Allen and Farber due to their inaccessible location to ground rescue crews.

A Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew launched and quickly found the hikers when they spotted a cell phone light from the cliffside.

After realizing the hikers were actually about 150 feet from the water line, and huddled closely on a small ledge, the aircrew immediately knew the situation was life-threatening, and it was critical to hoist Allen and Farber as soon as safely possible. 

When the rescue swimmer deployed from the helicopter to hoist the hikers, the brittle condition of the cliff’s face made establishing secure contact challenging as he worked to prepare Allen and Farber to be hoisted into the aircraft. The pilots, hovering about 240 feet above the hikers and rescue swimmer and near the limit of their hoist cable, kept critical attention focused on the nearby trees and dangerous pitch of the cliff’s ledge.

“The time of day and location of the hikers made this, by far, the most difficult hoist of my career,” said Lt. Cmdr. Sammy Hill, the aircraft commander for the rescue. “This was also the first operational rescue for both our rescue swimmer and flight mechanic. Considering the dark and perilous conditions, they did a commendable job saving the lives of these two people in their unprecedented first rescue.” 

The Coast Guard aircrew hoisted the hikers from the ledge at about 2 a.m. and took them to Forks Airport where they were reported to be in good condition.

Hill also noted the success of this rescue is attributed to the joint unit and agency collaboration between the park rangers and multiple Coast Guard units and watchstanders.   

The Coast Guard reminds hikers to always know the tide schedule while exploring near the beach and to always have a reliable means of communication in case of an emergency. The battery on the cell phone these hikers used to vector in their rescuers died just moments after the pilots spotted their location.

(SEATTLE) ICE/ERO REPORT: Deportation of El Salvador man convicted in 1997 of being ‘Child Molester’ #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.13: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers removed a convicted child molester and public safety threat from the United States to El Salvador, Apr.06:

ICE removes child molester from US to El Salvador: ‘Victor Argueta-Linares, 46, is a citizen of El Salvador who was in the United States illegally. In 1997, Argueta-Linares was convicted of both lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and sex offenses against a child, and on Oct. 22, of the same year he was ordered to be removed from the U.S. by an immigration judge’

Argueta-Linares has been removed from the U.S. to El Salvador on two previous occasions. He recently came to the attention of immigration officials, Dec 6, after he was booked on local charges at the King County Jail. ERO officers lodged an immigration detainer the same day.

ICE lodges immigration detainers on individuals, like Argueta-Linares, who have been arrested on local criminal charges and who are suspected of being removable, so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local custody.

On Dec. 14, the South Correction Entity (SCORE) in King County, Washington declined to honor the immigration detainer and released Argueta-Linares. On Dec. 21, ERO arrested Argueta-Linares during a targeted enforcement operation.

ERO reinstated his previous order of removal and on April 6, Argueta-Linares was removed from the United States via an ICE Air Operations charter flight and transferred to the custody of Salvadoran authorities.

ICE is implementing the interim civil immigration enforcement prioritiesdirected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to focus its limited resources on threats to national security, border security and public safety. ICE continues to carry out its duty to enforce the laws of the United States in accordance with the Department’s national security and public safety mission.

One Dead In Seattle University Campus Shooting


The shooting happened at Seattle Pacific University

I managed to get this about 20 minutes after it happened through a Police scanner https://acenewsservices.com/2014/06/05/at-least-2-shot-on-campus-of-seattle-pacific-university/

A man has died and another three people have been injured after a shooting at a university campus in Seattle. The incident happened at Seattle Pacific University in Washington state and a suspect is in custody. Police in the city said the lone gunman, who opened fire with a shotgun, was pepper-sprayed by a student security guard and disarmed as he was reloading. Harbourview Medical Centre spokeswoman Susan Gregg said a man in his 20s has died and a woman also in her 20s is in surgery with critical injuries. She added a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man are in a satisfactory condition. It is not known if the suspected gunman is wounded. One student told a local television channel, KIRO 7 TV, that he heard a loud bang from a nearby classroom which his teacher initially thought was a science experiment


Fire engines at the scene of the shooting

The student, identified as Blake, said someone went out and came back and said: “I think someone’s been shot.” “I was scared for about a minute,” he said, adding he heard shouting and someone running past the door. Then “cops come in through another classroom which was connected to ours and they escorted us out”. He added: “I just saw piles of blood on the ground, just scattered throughout the lobby. “And I actually stepped in a puddle… I saw someone was on the ground. Someone was on top of them, their hands behind their head.” The university said on its website: “Our heartfelt prayers are with our entire community. All evening classes are cancelled.” Around 4,000 students attend the Christian university, which is about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.

` FBI refuses to run `Nationwide Background Checks ‘ on people applying to license `Legal Marijuana Businesses in Washington ‘

#AceWorldNews The FBI is refusing to run nationwide background checks on people applying to run legal marijuana businesses in Washington state, even though it has conducted similar checks in Colorado – a discrepancy that illustrates the quandary the Justice Department faces as it allows the states to experiment with regulating a drug that’s long been illegal under federal law, according to (Seattle) AP .

Washington state has been asking for nearly a year if the FBI would conduct background checks on its applicants, to no avail.

The bureau’s refusal raises the possibility that people with troublesome criminal histories could wind up with pot licenses in the state – undermining the department’s own priorities in ensuring that states keep a tight rein on the nascent industry.
