Updated: Fire crews responded to Shilshole Marina this morning for a report of a man in the water, separated from his sailboat.
The sailor was rescued by another vessel nearby, according to Seattle Fire. He was then transferred to the fire boat on scene. He did not suffer any injuries.
The sailboat that was in trouble is beached near Anthony’s, according to the scanner.
This is second time in less than a year that a Good Samaritan has come to the rescue at Shilshole. Last November, a man was rescued by fellow boaters nearby after his fishing boat sank. The rescuers were honored by Seattle Fire.
