Medical complication aboard – medevaced

A Coast Guard aircrew medevaced a 24-year-old crewman from the fishing vessel Carol D near Baranof Island in Sitka, Saturday.

The helicopter crew hoisted and transported the patient to awaiting emergency medical service personnel in Sitka.

The call came in Friday night reporting a crewmember aboard the fishing vessel Carol D was suffering from medical complications from an infected tooth.

The vessel had pulled into Snipe Bay to avoid heavy weather but weather in Snipe Bay prevented a safe transfer of the patient to the air station crew. Given a weather window and likely deterioration imminent the Coast Guard aircrew launched at sunrise on Saturday and completed the hoist and transfer at 7 a.m.
