ASTORIA, Ore. – The Coast Guard rescue a man from a vessel approximately 57 nautical miles offshore Newport after he suffered a medical emergency.

Coast Guard watchstanders received a report Saturday evening of a 29-year-old male who had suffered from a stroke and related medical complications aboard the vessel Malto Hope approximately 1,000 nautical miles west of the Oregon coast.

Watchstanders at the 13th Coast Guard District Command Center recommended the ship transit closer to shore to be within range for a medical evacuation (medevac) from a Coast Guard helicopter.

Once the vessel was within response range, Coast Guard watchstanders directed the launch of an MH-65E Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter aircrew from Coast Guard Air Facility Newport to rescue the man.
