Coast Guard medevacs crewman near Cold Bay

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter out of Kodiak today hoisted an ailing crewman off the 124-foot fishing vessel Bering Leader some 57 miles northwest of Cold Bay.

The Coast Guard said it received a call at 8:02 a.m. from HealthForce Partners in Seattle requesting a medevac for the 39-year-old crewman reportedly suffering from stroke-like symptoms.
