Crewman Medevaced from F/V Baranof
Wednesday, February 20 2013
The Coast Guard helicopter forward deployed to St. Paul completed its third medevac of the fishing 'A-season' on Tuesday. The MH-60 Jayhawk picked up a fisherman with circulatory complications from the 170-foot Baranof around 6pm.
In a press release, the Coast Guard noted that sea ice made it impossible for the Baranof to get into St. Paul’s harbor. The 39 year old crewmember was airlifted to St. Paul for further treatment.
The helicopter has been stationed on the island since mid-January.
