Medics responded around 3:14 a.m. to a borderline hypothermic man rescued from the Port Washington Narrows.
Bystanders heard the man, estimated to be in his mid-to-late 30s, crying for help while being pulled northward by the tide, Bremerton Fire Department spokesperson John Payne said.
A Good Samaritan reportedly used a dinghy to help bring the man to shore near Taft Ave. at Anderson Cove in Bremerton, Payne said. First responders then took over his care.
“He was dried off and warmed up, they treated his scrapes and bruises,” Payne said. “The concern was how quickly hypothermia sets in.”
The man was thought to have entered the water from a relatively high point as he suffered significant bruising. He was taken to Harrison Medical Center for treatment and a psychological evaluation.
