Medevac Off Coast of New Jersey

Tuesday, May 30, 2006
The Coast Guard medevaced a man 60 miles off the coast of Atlantic City, N.J. At 6:44 a.m. the Coast Guard received a call for help from a crewmember of the M/V Acacia, a 536-ft. RoRo vessel, which was destined for Philadelphia. The crewmember was concerned that one of his shipmates, Joce Topacio, 56, may have suffered a stroke. A rescue helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City was deployed to the scene. With heavy fog and a visibility of only 40-feet, the crew of the Coast Guard helicopter was able to hoist Topacio to the helicopter and fly him to Atlantic City Trauma where he was released to awaiting emergency personnel.
