Crewman Medevaced with Head Injury

September 21, 8:35 p.m., the Coast Guard received a call from the 52-foot F/V MELVILLE that a crewmate had fallen and suffered a serious head injury about 90 miles west of the mouth of the Columbia River.

The Coast Guard helicopter arrived when MELVILLE was about 75 miles from the river mouth. A rescue swimmer was lowered, and climbed aboard to help the uninjured crewman clear the MELVILLE deck and prepare the injured man for air lift. The injured man was lifted by helicopter to the air station in Astoria, where he was transferred by EMS to Columbia Memorial Hospital.
