Fisherman MedEvaced to safety

A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew medevaced a 23-year-old man from a fishing vessel near Sitkinak Island, south of Kodiak, Friday.

The Jayhawk aircrew safely hoisted the man and rendezvoused with emergency medical services personnel in Kodiak. EMS transferred the man to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for further care.

The man contacted Coast Guard Sector Anchorage watchstanders reporting that he was unable to get back to Kodiak and was suffering from symptoms of diabetic shock. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon who recommended a medevac. Watchstanders requested the launch of the Jayhawk and maintained regular communications with the man until the aircrew arrived on scene.

Weather on scene was reported as a slight breeze and calm seas.
