Beware of lumberjack log rolling?

Confused about what I should be aware of on the coast of Manzanita, Oregon. Are lumberjacks out to get us?

    It’s warning you not to stand on the logs on the beach because sneaker waves can come up and carry you out to sea.  I’m not making this up.  It does seem preposterous but people are killed this way every year.

    Here’s a link to the official Oregon Parks and Rec. page about it.

    …or get near (or play on) logs that are in the surf, as they can roll over you and kill you.  Another way to meet your demise on the Oregon coast.
