A Eugene man was fatally injured Sunday during a visit with his family to a beach near Driftwood Shores Resort.

Ming Hsieh, 58, was sitting on the sand not far from the North Jetty, leaning against a log with his daughter and an elderly female family member. A wave came in quickly and knocked the female off the log and Hsieh and his daughter away from the log, which was estimated to be about 40 feet long and 25 inches in diameter.
