An Injured crewman was medevaced from the fishing vessel Irene H near Sitkinak Island, Wednesday.
The Crewman had sustained an arm injury, and was hoisted by Coast Guard helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak and transported to waiting EMS in Kodiak.
The fishing vessel Irene H requested the medevac just before noon, when they were about 3 miles south of Sitkinak Island.
Since the weather included 25 mph winds with 10-12 foot seas and restricted visibility the helicopter arranged to meet Irene H in North Tugidak Passage, between Sitkinak Island and Tugidak Island, for protection from wind and waves.
