A pretty white cabin cruiser floats just offshore. Two people in yellow rainsuits and boots are knee deep in water, floating a small rubber boat between them. Two people in yellow rain jackets are on shore. The whole scene is lit with floodlights. Tiny waves are breaking on the beach.

At approximately 1:45am Sunday, Shoreline Fire was dispatched to a vessel off Point Wells that couldn’t make it into shore because of the low tide.

One of the three individuals on the boat called 911 for a medical emergency.

At Point Wells, crews were able to drive close to the scene

After 30 minutes of working with several agencies: USGS, Norcom, Edmonds PD, and SCM16, they transported the female by medics to a local hospital.
