The Coast Guard medevaced a 46-year-old man Monday from a 968-foot bulk carrier while the ship was anchored near Cape Charles.

The ship's agent of the KM Osaka contacted Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders at approximately 6:45 p.m. reporting a man broke his arm and requested a medevac.

Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders diverted a crew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat - Medium from Coast Guard Station Cape Charles to assist.

"The crew was underway conducting training near Kiptopeke when we received the call," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin Clements, the officer-of-the-day at Station Cape Charles. "This allowed the crew to arrive on scene within approximately 15 minutes. Due to our close partnership with local emergency medical services personnel, they were waiting for the crew to return to the station, which allowed for a timely transfer of the patient to receive medical treatment."

The man was taken to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Nassawadox.
