A 29-year-old seafarer has been evacuated from the 63,392 dwt bulk carrier Great Fluency while the vessel was in the Straight of Juan De Fuca, Washington.

The Chinese man was reportedly exposed to phosphene gas, according to a report by U.S. Coast Guard.

In the morning hours of April 7, the Coast Guard District 13 received a notification from the Great Fluency about the incident and launched a response boat from Station Port Angeles.

The man was reportedly nauseous but able to climb down a Jacob’s ladder without assistance.

The seafarer was safely transported to the Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles for further medical attention, USCG said.

At the time, the 2016-built vessel was on its way from the port of Vancouver, Canada, to the port of Caldera, Costa Rica.
