HOUSTON​ —​ A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin aircrew rescue (medevac) a man from a tanker vessel 37 nautical miles offshore Galveston, Texas, Sunday.

U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders received notification at 7:20 a.m. from the captain of the crude oil tanker Caribbean Voyager that a 60-year-old crew member was experiencing stroke-like symptoms in the Galveston Offshore Lightering Area, 37 nautical miles offshore. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended a medevac.

U.S. Coast Guard watchstanders launched an Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter aircrew to conduct the medical evacuation.

The Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter aircrew arrived on scene, landed aboard the tanker, embarked the ailing crewman and transported him to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.

The patient was reportedly in stable condition.
