UPDATE: Water-rescue response in 5200 block Beach Drive, short-lived

5:16 PM: Seattle Fire has a water-rescue response headed by land and sea for a kayaker reported in trouble off 5200 block of Beach Drive.

5:19 PM: And the kayaker is reported to have made it to shore. … so they’re canceling the response.

    Yeah the responding officer didn’t sound too thrilled to find the “victim” just 20 yards off shore and paddling in lol. Better safe than sorry, though!

      Or perhaps they were speaking clearly and calmly as they’re trained to do. I promise you, a law enforcement officer will choose a person who is safe over someone who isn’t any day. Why are people so damn cynical and pessimistic these days??

Sorry, comment time is over.
