Seattle Fire to honor Good Samaritans who rescued boater off Shilshole

This last Saturday, a 35-foot fishing boat sank off Shilshole. A nearby boat saw the fisherman was in trouble, so they responded and pulled the man out of the water before rescue crews arrived.

“The Good Samaritans rescued the man from the boat, took him to shore, and provided him with dry socks, dry shoes and money for a hotel,” explains Seattle Fire.

Now the Good Samaritans, who remain anonymous, will be honored with letters of recognition from Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins. Well deserved!

The boaters of Puget Sound can be counted on when you are in trouble. They know the consequences of being in such cold water for very long. How kind to pay for his hotel and some dry shoes and socks!
