VIDEO: West Seattle Water Taxi crew rescues boater

10:24 PM: Thanks to Skip Tognetti for the video via Twitter – it confirms what tipster Kevin told us about this evening, a Water Taxi crew rescue just off Seacrest:

It appeared at about 6:05 pm a person fell out of a small Lund motorboat. Water Taxi pulled person out of water.

For all the times we’ve seen false-alarm “water rescue” callouts, there was no callout for this one, so we were unable to confirm at the time, but the video tells the tale.

ADDED 5 PM FRIDAY: Read more about it on the official Water Taxi blog-format website.

    I was just telling people that the crew rescue at least 1 -3 people every year (accurate?). Either way, they are awesome.
