Coast Guard rescues man near Dabob Bay

QUILCENE — The Coast Guard rescued a man wearing a life jacket near Dabob Bay in Dosewallips State Park on Thursday afternoon after he and another canoeist capsized their canoe.

Located in water

A Coast Guard Aids to Navigation Team (ANT) from Seattle rescued the 50-year-old man, who was conscious but suffering from symptoms related to hypothermia after an aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Port Angeles located him floating in the water.

The Coast Guard does not identify people it helps because of privacy concerns.

Coast Guard watchstanders at Sector Puget Sound received the report of a person in the water at 1:05 p.m.

Diverted for rescue

The ANT Seattle boat crew was in the area servicing aids to navigation, but diverted from that mission to rescue the man.

The rescue crew treated the man with basic first aid and transported him to local emergency medical services waiting at Pleasant Harbor for further care.
