USCG Medevacs Crewman from COSCO Bulker off Annapolis

A 41-year-old crewmember was medevaced from the bulk carrier Kang Hong in the Annapolis anchorage on December 26, the US Coast Guard informed.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region command center received a report from the 55,600 dwt ship stating a crewmember was experiencing stroke-like symptoms.

Sector MNCR watchstanders launched a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boat crew from Coast Guard Station Annapolis to respond. Two paramedics accompanied the RBM crew.

The crewmember was removed from the ship and transported back to Station Annapolis, where he was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center via ambulance.

As of December 28, the Supramax bulker is still anchored off Annapolis.

The 2005-built Kang Hong is operated by China’s COSCO Shipping Bulk, VesselsValue’s data shows.
