UPDATE: Water-rescue response on Alki, quickly canceled

8:16 PM: Hearing the sirens? Big SFD response on Alki, described as “Fireboat and rescue swimmers responding to the water near 2500 Blk. of Alki Ave. SW for possible paddleboarder in distress.”

8:20 PM: SFD says the paddleboarder was found and didn’t need help after all, so they’re canceling the response.

    I was on the Seattle waterfront dock waiting for the 830pm Water Taxi back to WS after the M’s game when the SFD “little boat” was dispatched, and saw it go over toward WS. Glad everyone is ok! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
