Coast Guard Rescues Man Near Maury Island

According to The Seattle Times [1], a man was rescued by the Coast Guard from the waters north of Maury Island Thursday afternoon.

Apparently the Coast Guard received a distress call around 1:30pm from the sailboat “Nardia Bound” reporting that a man had fallen overboard.

Despite wearing a life vest and being tethered to the boat, the man apparently couldn’t get back in.

A 25-foot rescue boat crew picked him up and took him to Des Moines, where he was taken to a hospital.

The man’s condition is not known.
