Coast Guard crews rescue Pennsylvania woman

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Coast Guard crews rescued a boater today after she reportedly suffered from heart attack symptoms while aboard the Adventurer, a 65-foot pleasure craft, about nine miles east of Cape May, N.J.

Rescued was Robin Kennedy, 42, from Croydon, Pa.

The Coast Guard received the call at about 11:30 a.m. and directed the launch of a rescue boatcrew from Station Cape May and a rescue helicopter crew from Air Station Atlantic City.

Kennedy was transferred to the Coast Guard rescue boat, hoisted aboard the rescue helicopter and transported to Burdette Tomlin Memorial Hospital in Cape May Courthouse, N.J.

This afternoon’s rescue marks the first for Lt. j.g. Chad Morgan, the helicopter pilot who flew Kennedy to the hospital. Morgan is from Pinehurst, N.C. For two members of the Station Cape May boatcrew – Seaman Lisa Cook, from Richland Center, Wis., and Jaqulyn Cruz, from Dayton, Ohio – this case was their first involving a rescue helicopter hoist.
