Fishing Vessel Captain Medevaced by Coast Guard

Monday, January 30, 2006
A rescue helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City and a 47-foot rescue boat from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City responded to the fishing vessel Shoreline, a 60-foot scalloper homeported in Atlantic City, after receiving a distress call concerning a hurt fisherman. The captain of the boat, a 40 year-old-male, had his arm caught in a wench, resulting in severe injuries to his hand, face and body. A rescue swimmer was placed on the deck of the Shoreline and secured the captain to the rescue litter, which was then hoisted to the helicopter. Crewmembers on board the 47-foot rescue boat boarded the Shoreline and helped steer the boat back to Station Atlantic City where it will go through a standard post search and rescue boarding before being released. The man was taken to Atlantic City Truama Center in Atlantic City. His condition is unknown at this time.
