Man dies in Puget Sound boat collision
SEATTLE – A man died Friday after a collision between a yacht and a small aluminum boat overturned the smaller boat, dumping its two occupants into Puget Sound.
The collision occurred Friday afternoon about a mile off Seattle, the Coast Guard said.
The yacht crew and nearby Suquamish police pulled the two men out of the water, KOMO-TV reported. One man, reportedly in his 60s, had lost consciousness and was pronounced dead a short time later despite attempts to revive him.
The second man, in his 70s, was taken to an area hospital as a precaution.
Seattle police were investigating.
