F/V Transit – crewman update

KODIAK, Alaska — A Coast Guard helicopter crew medevaced a fisherman, reportedly suffering from seizure symptoms, from the fishing vessel Transit in Shelikof Strait near Kodiak Island Sunday morning.

The 37-year-old fisherman was hoisted and transported to Kodiak where he was met by awaiting emergency medical services personnel.

“We received reports of a low pressure system approaching the area with the potential of bringing increased winds and seas over the next several hours,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Chris Sheffield, Sector Anchorage watchstander. “The quick response of our aircrew to the scene made it possible for a safe hoist and transit back to Kodiak.”
