Ferry workers are Washingtonians of the Day

Washington State Ferries director Lynne Griffith will join Jay Inslee at 3:30 p.m. today to “recognize the many heroic acts of crew members who went beyond the call of duty to save lives.”

Inslee will name the visiting crew members as Washingtonians of the Day.

“From rescuing people in swamped kayaks and capsized sailboats, performing CPR on deck, to even delivering babies, these crew members go beyond the call of duty and sometimes risk their own lives to keep our citizens safe,” the governor’s office said.
