Coast Guard medevacs crewman near Chignik

A Coast Guard helicopter today medevaced a 32-year-old crewman off the fishing vessel Cape Caution. He reportedly was suffering from "severe abdominal distress."

The boat was 69 miles southeast of Chignik. The Coast Guard said it was notified at 3:32 a.m., and the helicopter out of Kodiak hoisted the patient around 6:30 a.m.

The Cape Caution is a 90-foot pot boat out of Homer.
