Coast Guard Rescues Three

The afternoon of January 27, the Coast Guard deployed two MH-60 Dolphin helicopters and a 47-foot Motor Lifeboat in answer to a distress call from 46-foot crabber F/V WEST WIND, which reported taking on water and lying low in the water. At the time the Coast Guard arrived, reportedly at least two of the three crewmembers were in survival suits and all were in their life raft. A Coast Guard rescue swimmer aided the three in being safely lifted into one of the helicopters and transferred to a medical facility in Crescent City for follow-up.

Prepared with survival suits and a life raft, along with a quick response to the emergency by both the WEST WIND crew and by the Coast Guard, are credited with saving these lives.
