UPDATE: Water-rescue response near Jack Block Park, but ‘no victim found’

7:12 PM: Seattle Fire is sending a water-rescue response to the 2100 block of Harbor SW because of a report of “someone in the water” – in the Jack Block Park area.

7:20 PM: Responders are clarifying that the original report was that someone was heard yelling from the water “south of Salty’s.” Crews are trying to figure out whether the best access is from Jack Block Park or the shore by Salty’s.

7:29 PM: They’re searching the area from land and sea.

7:36 PM: Our crew at the scene confirms that this started with someone who heard someone yelling. Searchers haven’t found anyone or anything, and no one who saw anything, nor has anything more been heard, so they’ve declared “no victim found” and are winding down the response.

8:42 PM: Thanks to 22blades in comments for pointing out that the Coast Guard has had a helicopter searching just to be certain no one’s out there (SFD has closed out of the call).

      Thank you for pointing that out – we hadn’t checked radar and are too far away to hear it from here (crew’s back at HQ).

    There is a big response at Marination Tuesday night. Hope it isn’t related.
