A Coast Guard helicopter safely hoisted the injured crewman and transported him to Life Flight Network personnel for transportation to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.

The injured man had received antibiotics and pain medication plus the helicopter had a Life Flight Network nurse aboard to assist with patient care.

At the time of the rescue, the 623-foot Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel was over 200 miles offshore and en route to Columbia River.
