Dennis Keith Brockus, 45, in Oregon died in an example of the danger of flying kites near cliffs or rock outcroppings. Brockus was reportedly chasing his kite when he fell off rocks and into the ocean.
Brockus may have been trying to retrieve one of his kites when he fell into the ocean and was recovered later around 100 yards offshore.
