A Coast Guard helicopter crew hoisted a 28-year-old patient suffering symptoms of a respiratory infection from the fishing vessel Golden Alaska approximately 36 miles northwest of Cold Bay. The crew brought her to Cold Bay for further transport to a higher level of medical care.
The helicopter crew had launched from Dutch Harbor and refueled in Cold Bay before arriving on-scene. On-scene weather around the time of the hoist were 26 mph winds and 7-foot seas.
