USCG Medevacs Bulker Crewman off Columbia River

A 38-year-old man was medevacked from a cargo vessel 174 miles off the Columbia River entrance on September 30, 2017, the United States Coast Guard informed.

Watchstanders at Sector Columbia River received a call at 2:53 p.m. from the shipping agent for the cargo vessel Tawa Arrow. The agent reported the crewman had suffered burns on his legs and arms from a boiler steam incident.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Sector Columbia River hoisted the injured crewman and transported him to sector, where he was transferred to Life Flight Network personnel for transportation to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland.

At the time of the request, the 623-foot Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel was over 200 miles offshore and en route to Columbia River.

The 54,300 dwt Supramax bulker is operated by Japanese company Funada Kaiun, VesselsValue’s data shows.
