Coast Guard rescues couple after kayaks overturn near Point No Point

POINT NO POINT — A Coast Guard Maritime Force Protection Unit Bangor boat crew rescued two adults after their kayaks overturned near Point No Point Aug. 20.

The couple’s 12-year-old son contacted 911 on a cell phone and Coast Guard boat crews rescued and transferred the kayakers to local emergency medical service personnel waiting in Kingston, the Coast Guard reported.

At 3:40 p.m., Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound watchstanders received a report from Kitsap’s CenCom dispatch personnel stating that a woman’s kayak overturned while she was attempting to assist her husband, who was also in the water.

The Bangor boat crew arrived on scene aboard a 64-foot vessel to assist and transferred the mother, father and son to a Coast Guard 45-foot response boat, which transported the kayakers to Kingston at approximately 4:30 p.m.

All three were wearing lifejackets at the time of the rescue, the Coast Guard reported.
