Seattle police rescued two men and a toddler whose rubber raft began sinking in the choppy waters of Lake Washington last week, authorities said.
Patrol officers and officers from the Seattle Police Department’s Harbor Unit responded Wednesday to the I-90 floating bridge after the high winds and strong waves carried away the rubber raft that the two adults and two-year-old child were sitting in at the Stan Sayres boat dock, the department said.
The adults and child were not wearing life jackets, according to authorities.
