The captain was stabilized by a 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew from the Rogue River Search and Rescue Detachment in Wedderburn, who safely transferred the captain to local emergency medical crews in Gold Beach.

Sector North Bend watchstanders received a call around 10:40 a.m. from a crewmember aboard the 46-foot fishing vessel Flying Finn stating that his captain was suffering a possible stroke.

The 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew from Rogue River was immediately launched to assist. With two boatcrew members, one an EMT, transferring to the fishing vessel to stabilize the captain before moving him onto the MLB for the transit to Gold Beach.

After safely delivering the captain, the boatcrew returned to the fishing vessel and escorted the remaining crewmember south, where they met an MLB crew, from Station Chetco River, who took over and finished the vessel escort into Brookings.
