At approximately 3:13 p.m., Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles-Long Beach watchstanders received a report of a man having convulsions aboard the fishing vessel, Ginger, and did not have his medication aboard.
Watchstanders launched a Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco Forward Operating Base Mugu MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew to rescue the 19-year old man at approximately 3:22 p.m. and diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Narwhal to the scene.
Once on scene, the helicopter aircrew lowered the rescue swimmer to the fishing vessel to assess the patient. The MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew then lowered a rescue basket to hoist the patient into the helicopter and transported him to Torrance Memorial Hospital where he was transferred to awaiting emergency medical services personnel at approximately 4:25 p.m.
The patient was last reported to be in stable condition.
