Coast Guard Aircrew Medevacs Crewmember From Alaskan Fishing Vessel

USCG MH-65 Dolphin Helicopter Pulled Off The Rescue With 10-12 Knot Winds With An Air Temperature Of 43 Degrees

Not exactly the garden spot of the universe, the Coast Guard has an interesting job responding to emergencies in all kinds of Alaskan weather.

Most recently; a Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak aircrew, forward deployed to Cordova, Alaska, medically evacuated a 68-year-old crewmember from a fishing vessel near Cordova, Tuesday.

The MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew safely hoisted and transported the patient to commercial services in Cordova for further medical care.

On Monday at 9:38 p.m., personnel at the Sector Anchorage Command Center received a request for assistance from the crewmember’s wife, who reported that her husband had suddenly stopped texting her after stating he was ‘in trouble’ due to lack of oxygen on board the vessel.

Coast Guard personnel made multiple attempts to communicate with the vessel but were unsuccessful in establishing contact.

The aircrew arrived on scene at midnight and found the crewmember was having trouble breathing and had no access to oxygen.

Communications on scene were reportedly found to be severely degraded.

Weather on scene showed 10-12 knot winds with an air temperature of 43 degrees and a water temperature of 47 degrees.
