F/V JACKPOT Crewman Medevaced

On Saturday, August 24. At around 6:30 a.m., the crew of F/V JACKPOT, about twenty miles off Grays Harbor, Washington, reported one of their crewmates had been struck in the head by block that had come apart. The man was at first reported as unconscious, without a pulse, and not breathing. After CPR administered by a fisheries observer who was on board, the man was reported to be breathing with a pulse, but still unconscious. The Coast Guard reached JACKPOT just before 7:30 a.m. and medevaced the man by helicopter, taking him to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
