NEW ORLEANS — The Coast Guard medevaced a 60-year-old woman experiencing high blood pressure approximately 40 miles south of Pensacola, Florida.

Coast Guard Sector Mobile watchstanders received notification from a 72-foot fishing vessel of a woman aboard who was experiencing high blood pressure that continued to rise.

Watchstanders coordinated the launch of a Coast Guard Station Pensacola 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boatcrew to assist.

The boatcrew arrived on scene, embarked the patient, and transferred her to awaiting emergency medical personnel at Station Pensacola who then brought her to Gulf Breeze Hospital.

The woman was last reported to be in stable condition.
