The 60 foot long fishing vessel Pacific Rim sank off Westport, Washington. The Pacific Rim had struck a submerged object tearing a hole in the hull. Unable to control the water ingress, the Pacific Rim sent out a distress call. The Coast Guard responded quickly and rescued the single person on board. He was later taken to hospital for treatment for hypothermia. Reports state the Pacific Rim had some 250 gallons of diesel fuel on board.
