Sun, Aug. 14, 2011 incident—Disco Bay water channel

About 7 p.m., as we were leaving Disco Bay in our Bayliner flybridge boat, three of us saw a ski boat over to the side of the channel, and what looked like a young man drowning near the rocks, as his head bobbed up and down with a blank look on his face. He looked like he was in very bad condition. Another young man finally jumped in to hold his head up and cupped him in his arms. An adult male on a jet ski was also there with the ski boat filled with young people.
When a news reporter called the sheriff, they told her there were no "near drowning" incidents that evening and it involved a fight and drinking. As we progressed up the 5 mile an hour channel, we saw a law enforcement large, grey boat come screaming down the channel at high speed, with the siren whaling. Then it stopped, like it did not know where to go. The adult male on the jet ski that we saw came to motion it to follow him. We continued on our way, but can't help to wonder what really happened.

Did any of you see what happened or were you involved as one of the people in the ski boat to tell others if the young man is okay?
