Yakima Fire Department Responds to Jet Ski Rider in River

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The Yakima Fire Department responded to a report of a person in the river Tuesday night.

Just before 8pm, YFD got a call about a person reportedly driving a jet ski and losing control due mechanical problems and the rapid current in river.

When fire crews arrived, firefighters found that YPD and a couple of civilians had found the jet ski and had it secured on the bank.

Witnesses reported that the rider had climbed out of the river and waved to them and left the area.

YFD Water rescue team retrieved the jet ski using the rescue boat to tow it to an area that was accessible to a tow truck.

There were no injuries.
