COAST GUARD RESCUES INJURED CANADIAN WOMAN OFF LAKE WORTH INLET

MIAMI – A rescue boat crew from Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet, Fla., assisted a 55-year-old female this morning after she suffered a laceration on her foot one and a half miles off Riviera Beach, Fla. at approximately 11:15 a.m. today.

A watchstander at Station Lake Worth Inlet received a radio call from a crewmember on board the parasailing boat, Shoot Um Up, alerting them that while pulling Larna Delorne of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a gust of wind caused her to fall into the water and slice her foot on the propeller.

A rescue crew was dispatched on a 33-foot special purpose craft and picked up Delorne for further transfer to Riviera Beach Marina where Emergency Medical Services awaited her arrival.

She was reported to be in stable condition at the time of the transfer and was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla.
