A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk rescue helicopter aircrew hoisted the woman at 10 p.m. and safely transported her to a LifeMed flight team in Cold Bay for further transport to Anchorage.
Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 17th District command center in Juneau received a medevac (medical evacuation) request from Health Force Partners on behalf of American Triumph at approximately 4 p.m. Saturday for a 31-year-old crew member reportedly experiencing symptoms of an allergic reaction.
Watchstanders directed the launch of the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew from Forward Operating Location Cold Bay.
«Good, consistent communication between command center personnel, American Triumph and Health Force Partners allowed us to monitor the patient’s condition and coordinate an effective rescue when her condition worsened,” said Petty Officer First Class Christopher Catalioto, a 17th District command center watchstander.
On-scene weather at the time of the rescue was an air temperature of 28 degrees, 29 mph winds, and visibility of 10 nautical miles.
