Coast Guard conducts medevac off St. Paul

JUNEAU — A Kodiak-based MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew forward-deployed on St. Paul Island this afternoon conducted a medevac of a 43-year-old male from the 124-foot fishing vessel Lilli Ann 120 miles southeast of St. Paul Island.

Toun Tran, hometown unknown, reportedly injured his foot while the Lilli Ann was transiting between St. Paul Island and Dutch Harbor.

injured his foot? hardly seems worth a medevac. Must be more to this story. unless the injury is an amputation.. ya i could see a medevac for that.
