A 78-year-old man was evacuated from the Liberian flagged crude oil tanker Evrotas in the evening hours of September 12.

According to details provided by the US Coast Guard, the man was suffering from chest pains while the tanker was sailing near Ambrose Channel, New Jersey.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector New York command center received notification stating the tanker’s crewmember needed medical attention at around 9:30 p.m.

A conference call between the Coast Guard flight surgeon and the ship’s doctor determined that a Station Sandy Hook rescue crew was the best option for an evacuation.

At around 12:15 a.m., the 47-foot Motor Life Boat rescue crew and emergency medical technicians from the National Park Service arrived on scene. The man was transferred to Monmouth County Medical Center and is currently stable.
