The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) reported that rescue crews from Air Station Cape Cod medically evacuated a 25-year-old fisherman approximately 35 nautical miles south of Martha's Vineyard, Mass. Friday.

According to the Coast Guard report, Watchstanders at Sector Southeastern New England received notification via VHF channel 16 at approximately 8:12 a.m. Friday from the fishing vessel Argo that the man was suffering from epileptic seizures.

Search and rescue coordinators dispatched a rescue crew aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk Helicopter. The crew arrived on scene at 9:35 a.m. and safely hoisted the fisherman who was then transported to Rhode Island Hospital. His condition at this time is unknown.

"The time window that our flight surgeon gave us to possibly save this man was 90 minutes," said Donald Blankenship, a search and rescue controller at Sector Southeastern New England. "Our crews responded immediately and were able to safely get him hoisted in just over an hour so he could get help."
