Trio rescued by Navy

A sunny Saturday afternoon being enjoyed by a Central Kitsap man and his two teen sons suddenly came to an end when their motorboat ran out of fuel in Ostrich Bay.

The stranded trio caught the attention of the Navy, which sent a rescue boat to fetch them, as well as a man on shore, who rowed out to help.

One of the sons who had asthma had difficulty breathing during the excitement, but his condition was not serious, according to a report from the Bremerton Fire Department.
