Police impounded the boat for examination. There were 4 people aboard when it swamped.

Navy divers were able to save 3 of 4 people who were in a small aluminum boat that swamped just off the pier at Naval Station Everett.

Just before 8:00 AM this morning 9-1-1 began receiving calls of a small boat taking on water. Crews from Everett Fire, Marine Two with Everett Police aboard and Navy rescue all responded and found 4 people at a swamped boat.

One man was unconscious and a navy diver pulled a second man from the water.

CPR was started on two people and all four were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center by Everett Fire crews.

Everett Police impounded the boat and are investigating the incident. MyEverettNews.com does not know if the people in the small boat were wearing life jackets.

It is opening day of crabbing season and the water and 10th street boat launch were filled with people out enjoying the day.

We’ll provide further updates as they become available.
