Airlift from F/V North Sea

F/V NORTH SEA, a Seattle-based Coastal Villages Region Fund crab boat, experienced an emergency med-evac of a 23 year old fisherman on Jan 30th . NORTH SEA crewmembers called the Coast Guard that afternoon as the crewman was suffering seizure-like symptoms.

NORTH SEA was about 60 miles southwest of St. Paul, Alaska. Conditions at the time are said to have been 6-foot seas and 29mph winds. The Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak airlifted the fisherman to St. Paul for medical attention.
