EVERETT — Officials continue to review a fatal boating incident on Saturday in Port Gardner near Naval Station Everett.
The vessel was described as 18-feet-long with an open hull and outboard motor. It apparently became swamped around 8 a.m., tossing three men and a woman overboard, said Everett police officer Aaron Snell. They were out for the opening day of crabbing.
All four were pulled from the water by rescuers and taken to the hospital. One, a 42-year-old man, did not survive. His name has not been made public.
It was not clear Monday who had been operating the boat. There were life jackets on board but it did not appear they were in use, Snell said.
At this point, the death does not appear to involve a crime, he said.
