Coast Guard crews medically evacuated a fisherman at approximately 8:00 a.m., Wednesday, approximately two miles west of Block Island, R.I.

 

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England received a notification at 7:52 a.m. from the fishing vessel Explorer, homeported in New Bedford, Mass., reporting that a crewmember sustained a head injury due to the parting of a wire.

A Coast Guard Station Point Judith 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew immediately launched and safely transferred the fisherman to waiting emergency medical services at Station Point Judith for further transport to South County hospital, R.I.


"Crews were able to get underway in less than 10 minutes after notification, he was transferred to waiting EMS at 8:36 a.m.,” said Chief Petty Officer Jesse Jordan, the command duty officer at Sector Southeastern New England
Coast Guard crews work closely with the commercial fishing fleet, not only to enforce federal fishing regulations, but to ensure the safety of men and women that operate in the near-shore and offshore environment.
