Medevac off Durban
On Oct 12, 2017, at 3.31 p.m. NSRI Durban duty crew were activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) following a request for medical assistance from the bulk "Bochem Oslo" at anchorage 10 nautical miles off-shore of the port of Durban, reporting a 39 year old Indian crewman suffering chest pains. The sea rescue craft "Eikos Rescuer II" was launched accompanied by two Netcare 911 rescue paramedics. A Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) helicopter was dispatched from Richards Bay and the helicopter landed at NSRI Durban base where an NSRI Durban rescue swimmer and a Netcare 911 rescue paramedic were taken onboard the helicopter and the helicopter responded to the ship. On arrival on the scene the TNPA helicopter hoisted the NSRI Durban rescue swimmer and the Netcare 911 rescue paramedic onto the ship where they stabilised the patient. The patient was hoisted into the helicopter secured onto a stretcher and the paramedic was hoisted into the helicopter and the patient was flown to a Durban hospital, in the care of the paramedic, in a stable condition suffering from a suspected heart attack. The NSRI Durban rescue swimmer was transferred from the ship down a Jacobs Ladder onto the "Eikos Rescuer II" and the NSRI sea rescue craft returned to base.
