Ailing Bering Sea Fisherman Medevaced by Coast Guard

By | April 26, 2013 - 10:31 am

A Kodiak-based Coast Guard helicopter crew hoisted a 52-year-old man from the fishing vessel Katie Ann yesterday afternoon. He was reportedly suffering from symptoms of internal bleeding.

The MH-65 Dolphin took him to Cold Bay, about 110-miles to the southeast, and transferred him to a commercial life flight bound for Anchorage.

The Air Station Kodiak helicopter is currently attached to the Honolulu-based cutter Rush, which is patrolling the Bering Sea.
