The U.S. Coast Guard conducted a medical evacuation, Monday morning, of an injured man aboard a motor vessel in the vicinity of Marinette, Wis.

At about 8:45 a.m., the crew of Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay was notified via a shipboard radio of an injured man aboard the motor vessel Sikuliaq, a 254-foot U.S.-flagged research vessel, which the cutter's crew was escorting through the ice at the time.

The vessel was 200 yards from the pier, and due to the Mobile Bay's superior maneuverability in the ice, the crew was able to break ice around the Sikuliaq before launching a small boat crew to tend to the injured man and take him to shore.

The injured man was transferred to emergency medical services personnel and taken to the Bay Area Medical Facility in Marinette.
