A crewmember from the cargo vessel BBC Campana was airlifted approximately 10 miles offshore of Galveston, Texas, Monday after he was reportedly found unresponsive by the crew, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The Coast Guard said its Houston-Galveston watchstanders received a request from the captain of the cargo vessel BBC Campana for the medevac of the 34-year-old male crewmember. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon who recommended the medevac.

A Coast Guard helicopter crew was launched from Houston and hoisted the patient and transferred him to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston where he was reported to be in stable condition.
