Officers with Everett Police along with Everett Firefighters rescued two people whose boat was taking on water northwest of Jetty Island early this morning.

Shortly after midnight the US Coast Guard contacted authorities in Everett and asked them to launch after receiving a report of a boat with two people on board in trouble near Jetty Island. Both Everett rescue boats, Marine One and Marine Two launched and after about 50 minutes were able to locate the boat in trouble northwest of Jetty Island.

While the boat was taking on water, the two people on board were okay and were wearing life vests. The plan as of this writing (1:30 AM) was for Everett rescue crews to tow the disabled boat back into the Port of Everett. The Coast Guard was sending a boat up from Seattle for a post-rescue inspection.
