A Coastguard helicopter was scrambled to the scene of the incident about 1:45 p.m.

ET, the spokesman said.

The vessel was not sinking, and the Coastguard said it was in distress, according to the spokesman.

The spokesman said it’s not clear whether the vessel sank or was just on the water.

He said the Coast Guard would monitor the situation and determine if it is an accident or a spill.

The Washington state Coastguard was called to the Coastline Marina in Tukwila, Wash., at about 4 p.y. on Tuesday, the spokeswoman said.

There were no injuries.
