Coast Guard conducts multiple medevacs

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Coast Guard conducted two separate medevacs today, one involving a 61-year-old diabetic man, and the other, a 30-year-old man who suffered from chest pains.

Personnel at Coast Guard Station Fortesque received a call at about noon today from an individual who reported that the 16-foot bass boat he was on near Port Mahon, Del., ran aground. When the Coast Guard rescue boatcrew arrived on scene, they discovered 61-year-old William Winder unconscious, suffering from a diabetic attack.

A Coast Guard EMT treated Winder at the scene, and the boatcrew transferred him to awaiting personnel from Little Creek Fire and Rescue at Port Mahon.

In a separate case, the Coast Guard received a report at about 4:45 p.m. today that a 30-year-old crewmember aboard the scallop boat Sassy Girl was suffering from chest pains about 42 miles east of Delaware Bay.

A rescue helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City arrived on scene, hoisted the crewmember, and transferred him to Atlantic City Medical Center.
