SEATTLE — The crew of a Washington state ferry rescued a man who jumped overboard Wednesday in the middle of Puget Sound.

Spokeswoman Marta Coursey says it happened on the ferry Puyallup as it headed from Bainbridge Island to Seattle.

KOMO reports a woman saw the man jump and alerted crew members who launched a rescue boat and pulled him from the water.

The ferry was met by medics who took the man to Harborview Medical Center.
