SEATTLE, Washington (KTRK) -- The Coast Guard spent hours trying to stop an unmanned boat that was circling off the Seattle coast Friday.
Firefighters say a teenager started having steering issues as he got to the marine near Normandy Park.
The boat made a sharp turn and threw him into the water.
The teen had to swim half-a-mile to shore and call for help.
After two hours, a coast guard was finally able to get a crew member close enough to stop the boat and tow it back to shore.
No one was injured during the incident.
