Medevac off Oahu
An injured mariner aboard the 'Adonis' which was nine miles south of Honolulu was medevaced by Coast Guard crews and brought to Oahu on Feb 33, 2021. The 43-year-old man was reported to be in stable condition. A Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew flew the man to the air station where an ambulance was waiting to take him to Straub Medical Center. On Jan 30 at 4 a.m. , the captain of the vessel had notified the Coast Guard that a crewmember had suffered a hand injury. The Coast Guard flight surgeon recommended a medevac fearing the man’s injury could worsen if left untreated. The ship’s crew was told to set course for Oahu, where Coast Guard crews would rendezvous upon arrival. The weather at the time of the medevac was reportedly winds of 20 mph and seas up to 6 feet.
