FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  November 28, 2014 

CONTACT: Shari Ireton, Director of Communications, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, 425-388-3377, Media line: 425-249-6263

EVERETT, Wash. - The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit is assisting Everett’s Marine Unit in a water operation involving two docks, four boats, and two people on the Snohomish River.  Everett has rescued the persons on board two of the boats near Dagmar’s Marina and operations are underway to secure the vessels and docks.  

The incident began around 6 p.m. when a person on one of the boats, a 33 ft pleasure boat, reported that the dock it was moored to on the Snohomish River in Everett came loose from its mooring, along with three other boats and another dock.  The Sheriff’s Office deployed the Marine Unit and the Swift Water Rescue Team to assist, and requested additional assistance from the US Coast Guard.

At this time, no one is believed to be in the water or in danger.  Current efforts are focused on securing the vessels in the water so they do not pose an additional danger to property along the river.
