That’s Frank Massaro, a King County Water Taxi crew member who just won a special commendation from the U.S. Coast Guard. He was on board the Rachel Marie – the West Seattle-serving vessel that’s currently in a shipyard for repairs after last month’s downtown seawall crash – when he rescued a man from the water near Pier 50, the KCWT’s downtown dock. Full story in this report from the Seattle Times (WSB partner).

  2. What a great guy – leaping 20 feet off that dock into that water takes a very selfless strong person.

  4. Just from the photo, you can tell he’s not the type to seek the spotlight. That’s the best kind of hero. Thanks, Frank!
