Severe hand injury, F/V Pacific Harvester

An 18-year-old male, suffering from a severe hand injury and possible shock, was medevaced from the fishing vessel Pacific Harvester in Prince William Sound, Alaska, Thursday evening.

A Coast Guard emergency trauma technician treated the crewman while in transit to a Valdez pier where he was transferred to awaiting emergency medical service personnel for higher care.

The master of the Pacific Harvester requested a medevac for the crewmember who was suffering from a hand injury and displaying signs of shock. Coast Guard personnel directed the launch of a Station Valdez boat crew to perform the rescue.
