Emergency crews searched Tuesday night for two people reported to be in the water by Point Defiance Park, officials said Wednesday.
Firefighters responded about 5:40 p.m., and several agencies searched Commencement Bay near the Gig Harbor Lookout at the park.
The Tacoma fireboat found and rescued a woman from an embankment in that area, Tacoma Fire Department spokesman Joe Meinecke said.
It appeared the woman had fallen into the water, a man tried to save her, and the two got separated in the bay, Meinecke said.
Never miss a local story.
Crews found the man on shore. He hadn’t been able to contact anyone because his phone fell into the water.
Both people were in stable condition, Meinecke said.
