Man dies after boat capsized in Tulalip Bay

A man has died and a woman is in the hospital after their boat capsized in Tulalip Bay north of Everett Friday night.

At about 10:45 p.m., someone called 911 to report that they could hear people screaming for help in the water, said Petty Officer 3rd Class Nate Littlejohn, of the U.S. Coast Guard. Tulalip Fire and Rescue went to the area near Priest Point on the Tulalip Reservation and found a 50-year-old woman, who was wearing a life jacket, but hypothermic and in shock.

She said she had been in a boat with her boyfriend when it overturned.

Rescuers searched the area and found the man, who had died, at 4:15 a.m. He was about two miles north of the area where the woman was found, at Mission Beach. He wasn’t wearing a life jacket.

Law enforcement are investigating and hope to learn more from the woman about what happened.
