Calista Marie rescues Grayling crew

Good Samaritans Calista Marie crew assisted with the rescue of the captain and three crew members from the capsized fishing vessel Grayling in the Kupreanof Strait near Raspberry Island, Monday.

The crew of the Calista Marie arrived on scene and rescued one crewman from the Grayling, as the Grayling’s skiff driver rescued the master. A Coast Guard aircrew diverted their helicopter when they observed the captain of the capsized fishing vessel Grayling jump into the water to assist the fourth crewman. They noted he didn’t hesitate to jump into 47-degree water to save his crew

The captain of the Grayling was able to pull one of his crewmen safely onto the Grayling’s purse seiner skiff and initiate CPR. The Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk crew then transported him to awaiting EMS at Kodiak Municipal Airport.

With 17-mph winds, 5-foot seas with unrestricted visibility, the cause of the capsizing has not been determined.
