(Pacific City, OR)  --  One man is dead after his boat capsized near Haystack Rock in Pacific City.  The Tillamook County Sheriff's Office says the 73-year-old man died yesterday morning.  Police say the man was in a 12-foot rigid inflatable boat with a 19-year-old man when they decided to move out into the ocean for some fishing after laying some crab pots in the bay.  Police say that's when an ocean swell flipped their boat, throwing both men into the water.  The 19-year-old made it back to the boat and called 9-1-1.  A Coast Guard air crew found the 73-year-old man and pulled him from the water.  He died at the scene.
