Sheriff Eric Peter posted details on Facebook: San Juan County Sheriff Office received a call from an Orcas Island community member who witnessed an elderly male on orcas driving towards the ferry, looking confused, and possibly having a medical emergency.
Our Orcas Deputy team located the vehicle at the ferry landing and immediately called for EMS to respond. EMS evaluated the male, a determination was made that he was indeed having a medical emergency, and he was quickly flown off island for medical treatment.
Kudos to the alertness of one of our community members and the actions of our Orcas Deputy team working together to get one of our fellow community members the help he needed. What a great example of the community and the SJCSO working together to help our community. - Eric Peter- Sheriff
