Crewman medevaced off Bering Sea crab boat

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter today safely hoisted an ailing crewman off the fishing vessel North Sea about 60 miles southwest of St. Paul.

The 23-year-old crewman reportedly was experiencing seizure-like symptoms.

The North Sea is a 126-foot crab boat that belongs to Coastal Villages Region Fund, one of Alaska's Community Development Quota companies.
