A crew member from the crude oil tanker Paramount Hanover was medevaced some 92 miles offshore of Galveston, Texas, on October 5.

The United States Coast Guard received a request from the captain of the crude oil tanker for the medevac of a 20-year-old male crewmember.

The sailor was reportedly suffering from extreme abdominal pain. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon who recommended the medevac.

A Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew and an Air Station Corpus Christi HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew were launched to the crude oil tanker.

The Air Station Houston helicopter crew hoisted the patient and transferred him to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston where he was reported to be in stable condition.
