A Bend man swept into the ocean on Friday is being remembered by his best friend as someone who had a rough life, but was turning it around. A 25 year man who just moved from Bend to Klamath, California appears to be the only west coast death resulting from Friday’s tsunami. Dustin Weber, a graduate of Mountain View High School was swept out to sea has he took picture of the huge waves hitting the beach near Crescent City California. Two friends dove in to try to rescue him, but couldn't. The search was suspended on Friday after helicopters covered more than 250 square miles. Weber's friend, Blaise Butcher says he had moved to Crescent City two weeks ago and was moving in and fixing up a home he inherited from his grandmother. The family expects to hold a service in Bend in about two weeks.
