A Coast Guard helicopter aircrew medevaced an injured fisherman north of Kodiak Island, Alaska, Monday. A small boat transported the crewman to shore from the 42-foot commercial fishing vessel Rubicon. The helicopter aircrew transported the man safely from the nearby beach and transported the crewman to awaiting emergency medical services in Kodiak.
The call came in at about 12:45p.m., when the wife of the fishing vessel’s master requested a medevac for an injured crew member. Coast Guard launched a helicopter aircrew to respond. The crewman was delivered safely to waiting EMS personnel within the hour.
