The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) medevaced a Filipino crewmember from a tanker 23 miles south of Southwest Pass, Sunday.
 
Watchstanders with Coast Guard Sector New Orleans received a call from the crew of the 748-foot Marshall Islands-flagged tanker Lorelei reporting a crewmember was suffering from a reportedly broken left leg.
 
A Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew was directed to launch and arrived on scene to hoist the Filipino crewmember at 12:38 p.m. The aircrew flew the patient to the West Jefferson Medical Center and safely transferred him for further medical care.
 
A USCG video of the medevac is available here.
