A number of news sources are reporting that a woman who apparently jumped from a Seattle-based ferry yesterday into Puget Sound has been rescued by the Coast Guard.
The M/V Wenatchee was reportedly crossing from Bainbridge Island to Seattle’s Colman Dock when the women went overboard. A witness who observed the woman in the water alerted the vessel’s crew and two rescue boats were dispatched.
The Coast Guard said that they were notified of the incident around 1:45 P.M. yesterday.
Two other ferries, the Tacoma and the Kitsap, were summoned to assist in the search.
A Coast Guard vessel rescued the woman about 40 minutes after the Coast Guard was notified. The woman, who was in her 40’s, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.
