Coast Guard medevacs sailor from USS Sentry

SAN DIEGO – The Coast Guard medically evacuated a U.S. Navy crewmember from the USS Sentry Thursday afternoon.

Just before 1p.m., the Sentry sent out a broadcast notice to mariners stating they had a crewman who needed medical assistance. A Coast Guard 33-foot response boat was in the area and responded to the ship’s call asking if they would like help transferring the man to emergency medical services.

Almost immediately the sailor was transferred from the Navy vessel to the Coast Guard boat and taken to Point Loma Submarine Base where he was tended to by base medical services.
