1:36 PM: Seattle Fire is sending a water-rescue response to Beach Drive/Genesee. Dispatch says the report is of a paddleboarder 20 yards off shore, bleeding, yelling for help. Updates to come.
1:39 PM: They’ve revised the location to SW Carroll, which is Weather Watch Park (across from La Rustica).
1:40 PM: The person is now reported to be out of the water, and the response is being downsized to a low-level medical response.
2:38 PM: And now another water-rescue response dispatched, this time to the 5200 block of Beach Drive for a possible kite-surfer in distress.
2:45 PM: So far nobody in trouble – responders report seeing a kite-surfer “stand back up” on their board.
ADDED MONDAY NIGHT: Even after SFD closed their response, the Coast Guard stayed in the area a while. Danny McMillin sent the photo above showing what kind of seas they faced.
