South Whidbey Fire/EMS, Camano Fire Department and the U.S. Coast Guard teamed up for a late night marine rescue of two adults in their “early 20s” Wednesday.

According to South Whidbey Deputy Chief Wendy Moffatt, the district’s marine division responded to a call around midnight from a male and female on an adrift rowboat outside Langley Marina.

“Victims called 911 from a cell phone, but soon after the battery went dead on the cell,” Moffatt said. “There was a collaborative search effort with South Whidbey Fire/EMS, Camano Fire Department and U.S. Coast Guard to find them in the dark.”

The midnight rowers were eventually located and brought to shore. Neither was injured, Moffatt said.
