Saved by the Jacket
A Marine Search and Rescue team retrieved two kayakers from below Deception Pass bridge on Sunday. The kayakers, a man and a woman, were paddling in Cornet Bay late in the afternoon Sept. 11, according to David Carnes with the marine rescue unit. Carnes said the pair “poked around the corner” without realizing how strong the current under the bridge would be and were swept out by the rapids. Both kayakers were wearing life jackets.
The marine rescue unit sent in a rigid inflatable boat and pulled the kayakers aboard. Neither kayaker was injured.
