KINGSTON -- A 16-year-old Edmonds boy escaped injury after jumping from a state ferry as it approached the Kingston dock late Friday afternoon.
North Kitsap Fire & Rescue crews were dispatched to a water rescue in the waters adjacent to the ferry landing at about 4:20 p.m. on Friday after crew from the vessel, arriving from Edmonds, called in the incident. As firefighters were en route to pick up the district’s fire-rescue boat at the Kingston Marina, dispatchers informed them that the ferry crew had launched a rescue boat and plucked the boy from the water. North Kitsap Fire & Rescue crews transferred the boy from the ferry to the waiting paramedic unit where he was examined and found to be uninjured.
Washington State Patrol was interviewing the youth as fire units left the scene to return to their stations.
