Woman rescued from water at West Seattle marina

If you wondered what police and fire were doing at Harbor Island Marina this morning: A “water rescue” call went out around quarter past 7. The Fire Department had already cleared the scene by the time we got there, but police (as shown in our photo) were checking out a sailboat. From both SPD and SFD, we cobbled together these details: A woman fell into the water and needed help getting out. She was spotted, but would-be citizen rescuer(s) had trouble getting to her because of locked access to the docks. Kyle Moore from SFD says a “man in a small skiff rescued her out of the water and brought her to shore. When Engine Company 36 arrived, the female patient was being warmed up in the back of an SPD car. Firefighters conducted a medical evaluation. AMR transported her to (Harborview Medical Center) as a precaution due to spending approximately 20 minutes in the water.”

  1. Well the advantage of a locked marina is it keeps the bad guys out. But the disadvantage is it keeps good guys out too.
