Dead man identified in Alki boating accident

The man who died in a capsized boat off Alki Point has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as Anthony J. Collins, 40, of Port Orchard.

Collins drowned in the Friday afternoon accident, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Three of his crewmates suffered hypothermia but survived, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

The company for which the men worked, Ballard Marine Construction, said in an email on Friday night that it would not comment on the capsizing.

The survivors were taken to Harborview Medical Center. A hospital spokeswoman said Friday evening they were in satisfactory condition with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Collins was pulled from the wheelhouse of the vessel by three members of the Seattle Fire Department dive team.

Although there was an air pocket, and Collins was wearing a personal-safety device, he was unconscious and unresponsive when pulled from the little cabin and up to the surface at 3 p.m., said a Fire Department spokesman.
