MANASQUAN INLET, N.J.​ — The Coast Guard medevac a man from the fishing vessel Enterprise to 50 miles off Manasquan Inlet, yesterday Thursday afternoon.​

Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay watchstanders received​ a call from the captain of the fishing vessel Enterprise requesting a medevac for a crewmember experiencing severe abdominal pain.​

A Coast Guard Station Manasquan Inlet 47-foot Motor Lifeboat crew was launched to assist, arrived and transferred the crewmember aboard.​
