CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Coast Guard medevaced a man, Sunday, from a survey vessel 51 miles offshore Charleston.
Coast Guard Sector Charleston watchstanders received a report at 11:50 a.m. from the captain of the Thomas Jefferson, a 208-foot National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration survey vessel, stating a 43-year-old crew member suffered a severe laceration to their arm. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended a medevac.
Watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station Savannah helicopter crew to conduct the medevac.
The helicopter crew arrived on scene, hoisted the man, and transported him to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
The man was last reported to be in stable condition.
