NORTH BEND, Ore. — A Coast Guard aircrew medically evacuated a 28-year-old man Friday morning off the fishing vessel ‘Alaska Ocean,’ which was operating 15-miles west of Coos Bay.

Coast Guard Sector North Bend aircrew hoisted the man after he experienced chest pains and seasickness.

Watchstanders at the 13th Coast Guard District Command Center were notified at 3:15 a.m. by the company who owns the fishing vessel that the man was suffering medical issues.

A constant communication schedule was established between the sector and the fishing vessel.

At 6 a.m., after conferring with the duty flight surgeon, the sector dispatched an MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew.

The rescue crew arrived on scene at 9 a.m. and began hoist operations to transport the man.

  • In 2002, when Peter Baker first voiced his opposition to the large herring trawlers towing even larger nets off the beaches of Cape Cod, he didn’t think it would take 17 years to get a ban on what he and others saw as a return to the industrialized fishing that had wiped out New England herring, mackerel and menhaden in the 19 before the U.S. pushed the foreign fleet 200 miles offshore in 1976.
