A Seattle woman was killed on a barge in Elliott Bay after being struck on the head with a crane. The Seattle boat accident took place just before 11 AM on Thursday, June 24, according to the Associated Press and King5.com. The barge was docked near Waterfront Park on Alaskan Way.

The woman, 26-year-old Vanessa Downing of SeaTac, was later identified by the King County Medical Examiners Office. It is unclear what Downing was doing on the barge, which was about 30 feet away from the dock at the time of the boat accident.

Seattle Firefighters responded to the scene of the WA boat accident, where they rescued the woman from the barge using an extended ladder, a rescue basket, and rope. The woman was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition, though she soon died of her head injuries.
