1 Dead, 3 Rescued After Boat Hits Salmon Pen
SEATTLE (AP) – Officials say one person died and three others were rescued after a boat hit a salmon pen in Port Angeles Harbor.
A Coast Guard rescue helicopter crew diverted from training Tuesday after spotting someone on the boat attempting CPR on an unresponsive person.
The Coast Guard says the crew lowered a rescue swimmer who swam to a platform on the fish pier to help with resuscitation efforts.
A Coast Guard response boat removed all four people and brought them to emergency medical technicians at the pier.
The Port Angeles Police Department reported that one of the injured adults aboard the boat was declared dead.
Officials say the salmon pens were not in use when the crash happened.
The incident is under investigation.
