Ailing crewman airlifted off trawler Arctic Storm

The U.S. Coast Guard last night airlifted an ill crewman off the factory trawler Arctic Storm, 63 miles west of Cold Bay.

The 52-year-old man was said to be in cardiac distress, the Coast Guard said.

The helicopter, assigned to the cutter Alex Haley on patrol in the Bering Sea, safely hoisted the patient at 11:44 p.m.
