All aboard Study Beauty taken ill and assisted by Salish Air

Three people were rescued from the 33-foot recreational cabin cruiser Study Beauty in Sawmill Bay, in the Valdez Arm, Alaska, Thursday, after the captain alerted Coast Guard that the passengers were nauseated and going in and out of consciousness and the captain himself was beginning to experience the same symptoms.

The 10-year-old boy, 63-year-old woman, and 72-year-old man along with two nurses who were assisting the three, were transported to Valdez where emergency medical personnel were waiting transfer to further medical care.

The good Samaritan vessel Salish Aire and crew were in the vicinity of the Study Beauty and rendered assistance. Two nurses from the Salish Aire boarded the Study Beauty and provided medical assistance by giving them oxygen.
