USCG Medevacs Cargo Vessel Crew Member

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Two Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crews conducted a medevac of a Filipino-crewman off the 656-ft Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel Stellar Harvest 200 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor Saturday at 9:25 a.m.on Feb. 14. 

Angelo Tomado, 30, reportedly suffered two broken arms when he fell 16 feet in a cargo hold Feb. 11. The master of the vessel contacted radio watchstanders at Communications Station Kodiak who relayed the request to search and rescue controllers at the Seventeenth Coast Guard District Command Center in Juneau. The vessel was 975 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor en route to Coos Bay, Ore., at the time of the request.

Due to the range of the helicopters the vessel altered course toward Dutch Harbor to close the distance. The helicopters arrived on scene and safely hoisted Tomado and delivered him in stable condition to awaiting emergency medical personnel in Dutch Harbor about 11:18 a.m. who took him to the local clinic for further treatment.

The weather on scene at the time of the hoist was 30 mph winds with 10 to 13 foot seas and visibility of eight to 10 miles.
