Oahu Based Coast Guard Crew Transports Injured Man

HONOLULU – A Coast Guard rescue aircrew medically evacuated a man with neck and chest pains at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday 20 miles south of Pearl Harbor.

Coast Guard command center personnel received a call at noon from the captain of the U.S. Navy ship Bridge, a 754-foot vessel, concerning the 56-year-old man.

A Coast Guard rescue crew from Air Station Barbers Point landed on the flight deck of the Bridge and transferred the injured man to The Queens Medical Center at 1:45 p.m.

“For any search and rescue case, regardless of how small or big it may seem, we always try to respond as quickly as possible,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Franco Hernandez, a search and rescue controller with the Coast Guard’s Joint Rescue Coordination Center in Honolulu.
