Coast Guard Medevacs Man Near Saint Paul, Alaska

KODIAK, Alaska — The Coast Guard medevaced a man from a fishing vessel approximately 46 miles southwest of Saint Paul, Monday.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Kodiak safely hoisted the 43-year-old man at 2:56 p.m. and transferred him to awaiting emergency medical services personnel in Saint Paul for further transport to Anchorage.

At 9:56 a.m., watchstanders in the 17th District command center received a medevac request from fishing vessel Bountiful for a crewmember with severe burns. After conducting a brief with the Coast Guard duty flight surgeon, watchstanders directed the launch of the helicopter crew.

On-scene weather conditions were 46 mph winds, 8-12 foot seas, and 12 miles visibility.
