Burnt fishermen medevaced from Good Samaritan
The U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Air Force on June 21 responded to two injured fishermen aboard the "K. Coral" approximately 500 miles southeast of Bermuda. Coast Guard watchstanders at the 5th District Command Center in Portsmouth helped coordinate the launch of an Air Force HC-130J Combat King II aircrew from Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, at about 7:45 a.m. to provide medical care for Taiwanese nationals aboard the "K. Coral". The injured men experienced burns after their fishing vessel "Wenshun 112" caught fire on June 21. The Air Force rescue crew arrived at the "K. Coral"'s position at about 2 p.m. and deployed seven pararescuemen from the 347th Rescue Group. All seven pararescuemen made it aboard the bulkcarrier to offer first-response medical care for the burned fishermen. The Coast Guard received initial notification Tuesday at about 2:50 a.m. from the Bermuda Rescue Coordination Center that the fishing vessel had caught fire about 900 miles southeast of Bermuda. By the time the Coast Guard was notified, the "K. Coral" had seen smoke on the horizon and had responded to the scene. The "K. Coral" initially rescued 17 fishermen from the burning "Wenshun 112". It spent the next six hours searching for the remaining two missing crewmen before locating them clinging to wreckage at about 6 a.m. A Coast Guard flight surgeon recommended that the two burned sailors receive immediate medical care beyond what the crew of the K. Coral could provide. The Coast Guard then worked with the Air Force to determine the best medical options for the burned survivors. The 19 survivors from the "Wenshun 112" were scheduled to arrive in Bermuda by June 24, where the injured will be further evaluated by medical professionals. The cargo ships "Cherry Point" and "Jean LD" also responded to help search for the two missing fishermen after the Coast Guard sent out a radio broadcast requesting all vessels in the area to assist.
