Fisherman rescued after falling into water at Fishermen’s Terminal

A man was taken to the hospital after he was pulled from the water at Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal Friday night. Seattle fire officials said the man was walking off a vessel on a makeshift plank and fell, when the plank broke. Israel Bynum, a crew member on the vessel named Rondys, said he had just crossed the plank 30 seconds before his boss did. “I was looking at him, and I heard the board break, and I went to try to support it and there was no support. He just went,” Bynum said. Bynum said his captain, Mark Sehlbach, has been on the TV show ‘Deadliest Catch.” Sehlbach was pulled out of the water and taken to Harborview Medical Center. Later in the evening, Bynum said Sehlbach was discharged from the hospital with a bruised rib. The crew had just returned Thursday from a trip to Alaska. Watch the video, read the story here 08:02
