Crewman fingers severed

285′ Factory Trawler AMERICAN TRIUMPH called the Coast Guard on Feb 12, 2015 to report that a 36-year old man had two of his fingers severed by a steel door.

A Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter crew from Cold Bay flew 92 miles north to the trawler, safely medevaced the man, and flew him back to Cold Bay for emergency medical services.

The factory trawler AMERICAN TRIUMPH (previously named ACONA) was built by the Albina Engine & Machine Works in Portland, Oregon, in 1961.
