Washington State Ferries workers saved a woman who went overboard from the ferry M/V Puyallup during an afternoon sailing Friday between Seattle and Bainbridge Island.
Few details were immediately available. According to the WSF’s Twitter account, the crew of the Puyallup pulled the woman out of the water while the vessel was near Seattle.
“They are being transported to a medical facility. We’ll do our best to make up some time, but expect some delays on the SEA/BI route this afternoon,” WSF said in its Twitter feed.
WSF added in a second post: “Thanks for the quick work of riders who reported a woman overboard the #Puyallup and to our crew who acted swiftly to get her out of the water.”
Ferries to and from Bainbridge Island were delayed for hours after the incident.
