SAN DIEGO — A Coast Guard Air Station San Diego MH-60 Jayhawk rescue helicopter aircrew medevac a 29-year-old crewmember (male) from the petroleum oil tanker vessel Ingrid approximately 160 nautical miles southwest of San Diego, Wednesday afternoon, 3 March, 2024.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector San Diego Joint Harbor Operations Center received a distress call from the oil tanker Ingrid at approximately 1:30 p.m., reporting that a man was experiencing a medical emergency.

In response to the distress call the Coast Guard watchstanders consulted with the on-duty flight surgeon who determined that the patient required immediate higher-level medical attention and recomended a medical evacuation (medevac).

The Coast Guard Sector San Diego watchstanders inmediately launched a Coast Guard Air Station San Diego MH-60T Jayhawk Medium-Range Recovery Helicopter aircrew with an embarked Specialized Trauma Assistance Team (STAR) medic to retrieve and transport the patient ashore.

Over the scene, the Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk MRR helicopter aircrew deployed the rescue swimmer and safely hoisted the patient onto the aircraft and, once aboard, the rescue helicopter crew headed to home. The MH-60 Jayhawk landed at Air Station San Diego at approximately 4:30 p.m. and transferred the patient to awaiting Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

The patient was reported to be in stable condition.
