A 31-year-old crew member from the tanker Hafnia Phoenix was medevaced off the coast of Boston on December 28.

According to data provided by the US Coast Guard, the seafarer fell ill while the vessel was some 26 miles east of Boston.

The captain of the ship notified Coast Guard Sector Boston watchstanders of the man’s condition, and it was determined a medevac to the nearest hospital was necessary.

A Coast Guard Station Boston crew, augmented with emergency medical services personnel from Massachusetts General Hospital, launched to assist as the Denmark-flagged Hafnia Phoenix made way toward Boston.

The crew arrived on scene shortly and took the patient aboard. They then transported him to Black Falcon Cruise Terminal where an ambulance was waiting, USCG said, adding that the patient was expected to be brought to Tufts Medical Center for further care.
