VIDEOS/PHOTOS: An unmanned boat was running in circles off Normandy Park


An unmanned Boston Whaler boat was circling off Normandy Park late Friday afternoon, Aug. 24.

The Coast Guard told KOMO News that a teen was in the boat doing very sharp turns when he fell overboard. He was able to get to shore safely.

Resident Ron Laiminger told The B-Town Blog that the boat had been circling since around 4 p.m.

“Also I saw the same boat yesterday (Thursday) doing circles in the same area playing around with someone on a Jet Ski,” Laiminger added.

The Coast Guard was on the scene, and a man was able to jump onto the boat and stop it at around 6:30 p.m.
