A harbor unit patrolling the water off Alki yesterday spotted what they believed to be an empty kayak around 3:30 pm. They went to investigate and spotted a man clinging to the side. The officers pulled the man aboard and immediately began treating him for exposure. The man, although wearing a life jacket, had been in the water for at least an hour and was near exhaustion.

Please remember that the water temperature in the Sound is 52.3°F today.
