The Coast Guard medevaced an 87-year-old female reportedly suffering from complications associated with a lower back injury aboard the fishing vessel Annie B in Port Alexander, Sunday evening.

An Air Station Sitka MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew hoisted the injured woman and transported her to awaiting emergency medical services in Sitka.

Watchstanders at the 17th District command center in Juneau received the report from the master of Annie B that a woman had been injured when the fishing vessel took a roll and requested assistance. The duty flight surgeon recommended medevac and the helicopter crew was dispatched to the scene.

Once the rescue crew arrived on scene, the rescue swimmer hoisted the injured women from the anchored fishing vessel and transported her to Sitka.

"The captain made the right call by immediately contacting the Coast Guard after the accident,” said Lt. Greg Isbell, command duty officer, Coast Guard 17th District. “We were able to quickly respond and transport the patient to higher medical care.”
 

Weather at the time of the incident was reported as 1-foot seas and 11 mph winds.
