July 6, the Coast Guard received a medevac request from 50-foot F/V SEA BREAKER, about 24 miles east of Sitka. A crewman, aged 50, had collapsed, hit his head, and was having difficulty breathing.
The SEA BREAKER crew reached the Hidden Falls Hatchery in Angoon, approximately 100 miles south of Juneau, and then transported their crewmate by truck to a clear area on land so that the Coast Guard helicopter could airlift him to Air Station Sitka. He was transferred by land for emergency medical care. The man is said to be in stable condition.
