NEW YORK — A Coast Guard aircrew medically evacuated a 47-year-old man 65 miles south of Montauk, N.Y., Friday.

At 8:25 a.m., the fishing vessel Braedon Michael notified Coast Guard Station Montauk, who then relayed to Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound, of a crewmember aboard who was experiencing flu like symptoms and was in and out of consciousness.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter launched from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at 9:50 a.m., and arrived on scene approximately an hour later.

The crewmember was safely hoisted from the deck of the Braedon Michael and transported to Air Station Cape Cod, where local Emergency Medical Services were waiting.
