Coast Guard medevacs fisherman from Dutch Harbor

A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak HC-130 Hercules aircrew medevaced a 26-year-old male today from Dutch Harbor to Anchorage.

The crew of the 116-foot Constellation contacted the Coast Guard about 5 p.m. Wednesday reporting a crewmember had suffered head injuries from a fall while the vessel was transiting through 10-foot seas about 45 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor.

The Coast Guard diverted the Hercules from a training flight to meet the Constellation in Dutch Harbor.

The Constellation arrived in Dutch Harbor at about 10:30 p.m.

The Hercules arrived in Anchorage at 2:15 a.m., and the patient was taken to Alaska Regional Hospital.
