BODEGA BAY, Calif. — At approximately 10 a.m. today while underway conducting training, a 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew, from Coast Guard Station Bodega Bay, responded to a call for assistance from the fishing vessel Carmillo located approximately a half mile outside of the Bodega Bay entrance buoy.

A crewmember from the fishing vessel had gotten his hand caught in the crab block and was severely injured.

Both of Station Bodega Bay’s 47-foot MLBs diverted from their training and responded to the vessels location.

Once on scene, the rescue crew transferred the injured crewman to the Coast Guard boat, where a trained emergency medical technician Petty Officer 2nd Class Wesley Sedlacek began treating the injured man and assessing his vital signs.

Both 47-foot MLB’s proceeded rapidly back to Station Bodega Bay, where the Bodega Bay Fire Department transported the patient to Palm Drive Hospital in Sebastopol, Calif.
