F/V Coventina Skipper injured in fall -medevaced safely

The captain of the fishing vessel Coventina reportedly fell in the fish hold, injuring his ribs and showing signs of shock. A relief captain took control of the vessel and navigated to Stockdale Harbor on the northwest side of Montague Island.

A Coast Guard helicopter crew deployed to Cordova, Alaska, medevaced the captain from a beach, rather than direct from the F/V because of it’s configuration, in the vicinity of Prince William Sound, Alaska, Saturday. They brought the injured captain aboard and transferred him to Cordova where local emergency medical services personnel were waiting.
