Montana man dies in Port Townsend capsizing

The Associated Press

PORT TOWNSEND — A Montana man died after a small sailboat capsized Sunday near Port Townsend.

Police says 57-year-old Stephen I. Halpin of Huson, Mont., was sailing with his wife and another woman in a gathering of dinghies known as SCAMP boats when their vessel overturned.

Another sailor picked up the three from the water, and they were on their way back to shore when Halpin went into cardiac arrest.

East Jefferson Fire Rescue Duty Chief Gordon Pomeroy told the Peninsula Daily News a rescue team responded but it was requested to stop CPR because Halpin had a terminal medical condition and a “do not resuscitate” order.

On Saturday, the Coast Guard responded to a separate capsized sailboat in the same area and no one was injured.
