Coast Guard airlifts injured man in ATV accident – Video

SEATTLE – The Coast Guard airlifted a 29-year-old male after he was injured in an ATV accident at Lake Tarboo, north of Quilcene, Wash., today.

Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles received a call from Jefferson County Emergency Medical Services at 1 p.m. requesting helicopter support for a male who had gotten into an ATV accident with his daughter.

The father and daughter were in a heavily wooded area that would require the hoisting capability of a Coast Guard helicopter. The daughter was able to be transported out of the area into a clearing where an Air Lift Northwest helicopter was able to land and transport her to a local hospital.

A Coast Guard HH-65C Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles launched to the scene and airlifted the father to the same hospital as his daughter.
