Coast Guard MH-65 Medevacs Injured Fisherman

Helo Rescue Takes Place 100 Miles Off Coos Bay, Oregon

Anyone with any experience in the helicopter industry has a healthy respect for the folks who crew USCG rescue helicopters... some of the most difficult flying in the known universe. Day after day, night after night, these folks pull off rescues in some incredibly insane conditions.

Most recently; a Coast Guard aircrew medically evacuated a 26-year-old man Saturday morning off the fishing vessel McKenzie Rose 100 miles west of Coos Bay.

The fishing vessel’s captain used a marine radio to hail watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector North Bend at approximately 5:30 a.m. to report a member of the crew sustained a head injury and was in need of medical attention.

The McKenzie Rose began to transit toward shore to more quickly rendezvous with the Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew. A constant communication schedule was established between the Sector and the fishing vessel.

The aircrew hoisted the injured fisherman shortly after noon and transported him to the Coast Guard airbase where his care was transferred to emergency medical services personnel. “Getting this man to emergency medical care was a coordinated effort between the McKenzie Rose crew and the Coast Guard," said Petty Officer First Class Michael Halasz, Sector North Bend watchstander. "The teamwork greatly aided in the swift transport and treatment of the injured crew member."

The current condition of the man is unknown.
