CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Coast Guard crews medevac (medical evacuation) an 84-year-old boater (male) who appeared to be suffering from weather exposure approximately 38 nautical miles south of Port O’Connor. Thursday, June 13, 2024.

U.S. Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi watchstanders received a Mayday call at 11:17 p.m. from someone aboard the boat.

Sector Corpus Christi watchstanders issued an urgent marine information broadcast (UMIB), diverted an MH-65 Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter rescue aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi, and directed the launch of a 45-foot Response Boat–Medium (RB-M) rescue boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Port O’Connor.

The RB-M boatcrew arrived on scene, embarked the boater, and transported him to Clarks Boat Ramp where he was transferred to the care of awaiting emergency medical services (EMS) personnel.
