USCG Medevacs Crewman from Bulker

A 50-year crewman who fell ill while working aboard the bulk carrier Atlas was medevaced more than 200 miles west of the Columbia River Bar on December 1, 2017, the US Coast Guard (USCG) informed. 

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 13th District Command Center received a request for assistance from the captain of the 63,500 dwt bulker, reporting the crewman was exhibiting symptoms of either a heart attack or a stroke.

A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Sector Columbia River hoisted the ill crewman and transported him to sector, where he was transferred to Life Flight Network personnel for transportation to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

At the time of the request, the Cyprus-flagged cargo vessel was more than 300 miles offshore and en route to Seattle.

The 2017-built ship is operated by Greece-based Dalnave Navigation, VesselsValue’s data shows.
