Police pull two from water, no injuries

Seattle police say a woman was pulled from the water by Seattle Harbor Patrol on Thursday afternoon about 100 yards off Shilshole. No one was injured, police said.

According to police, the woman and another person had been on a 16-to 18-foot Hobie Cat when the boat rolled or overturned. The other person was able to get back on the boat, but the rescued woman was not, Seattle fire said.

The woman was wearing a dry suit, a floatation device and holding onto a buoy when rescuers arrived, according to the fire department. Once the woman was delivered back to the boat, both she and other person declined further medical services, said a Seattle fire spokesman.
