The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) medevaced a man Wednesday from a Navy vessel off the Virginia coast after watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads in Portsmouth received a request for the medevac from the USS Barry who reported a 36-year-old crewmember was experiencing chest pains at approximately 3 a.m.

A Coast Guard video of the medevac is available here.

A USCG MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew was launched from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and arrived on scene approximately 40 miles east of Virginia Beach at about 5:10 a.m.

The aircrew lowered a rescue swimmer and a rescue basket, then hoisted the patient to the helicopter.

The man was taken to Portsmouth Naval Hospital where he was last reported in stable condition.
