Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound watchstanders in Seattle received a call just after 8 a.m. from the crew aboard the 98-foot tug vessel Eagle, reporting a crewman suffering a ribcage injury near the middle of Elliot Bay, near downtown Seattle.

A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Station Seattle arrived on scene and came alongside the tug. RB-M crewmembers were able to climb aboard the tug with a rescue litter. The Coast Guard crew, with help from the Eagle crew, secured the injured man in the litter and transferred him to the RB-M.
