Medevac off Kodiak
A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk aircrew medevaced an 83 year-old man experiencing symptoms of a possible heart attack aboard the "Statendam" approximately 70 miles east of Kodiak Island on July 22, 2015. The Jayhawk helicopter crew hoisted the man, along with a nurse from the ship, and transferred them to awaiting emergency medical services at Air Station Kodiak.
Watchstanders at the 17th District command center in Juneau received a report from the captain of the cruise ship of a passenger suffering a possible heart attack and requested assistance. The duty flight surgeon recommended medevac and the helicopter crew was dispatched to the scene.
The weather at the time of the medevac was reported as 15 mph winds with 5-foot seas.
