CHARLESTON, S.C.— A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin aircrew medevac a man from the fishing vessel Crystal C, Wednesday, 50 nautical miles east of Charleston, South Carolina.

The MH-65 Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter (SRR) aircrew, from Coast Guard Air Station Savannah, transferred the man, John G.M., to​ awaiting emergency medical services personnel at U.S. Coast Guard Air Facility Charleston.​ The EMS staff transported him to the Medical University of South Carolina for further medical care.

A Go Crusader crewmember relayed a message to U.S. Coast Guard Sector Charleston watchstanders at 8:21 a.m., via VHF-FM channel 16 stating a crewmember aboard the fishing vessel Crystal C was unresponsive. The communications radio on board the Crystal C was unable to transmit to U.S. Coast Guard Sector Charleston watchstanders.

«The skilled MH-65 Dolphin aircrew conducted a tough hoist to the bow of the vessel,» said Lt. Sam Ingham, U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Savannah, mission commander. «We got the man off safely and into proper medical care as quickly as possible.»
