CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas —​ A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin aircrew rescue (medevac) a 64-year-old man from a tanker vessel near Corpus Christi, Monday.

U.S. Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi watchstanders received a call at approximately 1 p.m. from the captain of the tanker vessel Laurentia Desgagnes requesting a medevac (medical evacuation) for a crew member reportedly experiencing low blood pressure and a high heart rate in the Corpus Christi Anchorage.

U.S. Coast Guard watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended a medevac as soon as possible.

Watchstanders diverted a Coast Guard Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi MH-65 Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter (SRR) aircrew to assist.
