NEW ORLEANS — A Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk aircrew medevac a 67-year-old man Friday from a recreational boat approximately 45 nautical miles east of Venice, Louisiana.

U.S. Coast Guard Sector New Orleans​ watchstanders​ received a distress alert from the boat’s VHF radio.

A good Samaritan in the area relayed the boat’s radio message that one of the passengers aboard was suffering from heart-attack-like symptoms.

The USCG watchstanders diverted a Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans MH-60T Jayhawk Medium-Range Recovery Helicopter aircrew that was training in the area of Venice to perform the medevac (medical evacuation).
