A Coast Guard crew and local first responders worked together to rescue an injured tugboat crewmember near Kingston, N.Y., Jan. 4, 2011. An engineer aboard the tug Barbara McAllister reportedly suffered a leg injury and was stuck in the engine room while en route to Albany, N.Y., in the Hudson River. Coast Guard Sector New York’s Search command center dispatched the cutter Wire to Kingston, where the crew took on members of the Kingston Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services to assist in the rescue. After successfully getting the engineer aboard the Coast Guard cutter, the injured man was brought to Kingston Point, where he was transferred to local EMS for additional treatment. The cutter Wire is homeported in Saugerties, N.Y.
