Everett, Police Blotter

Editor’s update 8:00 AM Friday February 19th: Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell provided the following update via email. My understanding of the incident is that she parked and fell asleep. We arrived and helped secure her until fire arrived with a ladder.

No word yet on how the woman ended up there.

Firefighters stretched a ladder from the dock to the SUV.

The woman begins to crawl down the ladder.


Police, Firefighters and State Wildlife agents all assisted.


The woman makes it safely to the dock.

The woman was transported to the hospital and Everett Police worked to remove the SUV from the boat launch.

Still waiting for the explanation but the good news is a woman is okay after being stuck on the roof of her SUV at the 10th street boat launch in Everett Thursday night.

Everett Police and Firefighters were called to the Port of Everett shortly after 7 PM to the report of car into the water.

The woman was standing on top of her SUV as the water continued to rise as the tide came in.

She was given a life vest and they secured a safety line.

Firefighters then ran a ladder to the roof of the car from the dock and the woman was able to crawl to safety.

She was cold but able to walk off the dock and was transported by ambulance to Providence Regional Medical Center to be checked out.

At the time the photos were taken, Everett Police officers were still trying to determine how the woman got into that circumstance.

Everett Police were working on removing the SUV from the water before gas and oil caused any environmental issues.
