    SEATTLE -- A Coast Guardsman from Rhode Island who fell off a 25-foot fast response boat in Puget Sound near Vashon Island died of injuries suffered when the boat's propeller hit his head, the King County medical examiner's office said Monday.

    The Coast Guard identified the victim as Petty Officer 3rd Class Ronald Gill, 26, based in Anchorage, Alaska.

    Gill, assigned to the Coast Guard's Maritime Safety and Security Team in Anchorage, was among those deployed to Seattle for maritime homeland security operations during March. He died Sunday, the last scheduled day of those operations, the Coast Guard said.
