Coast Guard medevaced a fisherman who lost consciousness aboard a charter fishing vessel near Seward, Tuesday.
The 61-year-old experiencing symptoms of a heart attack was lifted from the vessel Arctic Endeavor just off Cape Resurrection and brought to awaiting local EMS in Seward, where he was responsive and appeared to be in stable condition.
The captain of the Arctic Endeavor called for help about 10:30 a.m.

“Operating out of Cordova allows us to respond much more quickly to many of the search and rescue cases that happen this time of year,” said Lt. Daniel Beshoar, co-pilot for the case. “The Arctic Endeavor crew out of Seward today was extremely helpful, and with their cooperation we were able to get this man to the medical care he needed.”
