SEATTLE — Two people have been rescued from cold Puget Sound waters after falling out of a sailboat.
Seattle Police Det. Renee Witt said Saturday that two people fell off the boat before 4 a.m. and were unable to get back on board. Other people in the boat threw ropes and life jackets to help them stay afloat, but Witt says the people were in the water for a while before friends decided to call 911.
Crews transferred the two people to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of possible hypothermia.
