The "victim" was located and a Coastie was lowered down to the water

U.S. Coast Guard Air Station / SFO Port Angeles and Shoreline Fire held a joint Search and Rescue exercise on Puget Sound by Shoreline on Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The major part of the exercise was to locate "Oscar," a mannikin that was placed in the Sound three hours prior to the rescue mission.

Oscar, the manikin, had flotation devices

"After drifting in the Sound for 3 hours, we were able to locate and recover within the first 30 minutes!"

The exercise involved reconnaissance runs over the Sound, the fire boat, and about a dozen personnel.
