Kite-boarder rescued off Golden Gardens Park

A kite-boarder in distress was rescued this afternoon from the water off Golden Gardens Park, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

The department received a 911 call around 4:45 p.m. from someone on shore reporting that a kite-boarder was in trouble in the water.

Before firefighters arrived, a private boat reached the man and he was towed to safety by 5:02 p.m, Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said.

The kite-boarder was wearing a wet suit and was not injured, according to Moore.
