Twice to the rescue

For the second time in less than a week, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter has flown out to the giant Bering Sea processing ship Ocean Phoenix to conduct a medevac.

The master of the 680-foot vessel called the Coast Guard this morning to report a 30-year-old male crewman had an eye injury and needed medical assistance.

The ship was 34 miles northwest of Cold Bay.

On Wednesday, the Coast Guard flew to the Ocean Phoenix to pick up a 25-year-old female crewman with chest pains.

The Ocean Phoenix is considered the largest fish-processing vessel in the United States.
