Coast Guard Medevacs Fisherman off Chatham

Coast Guard officials Medevaced a distressed fisherman Saturday afternoon.

A Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod helicopter crew responded to a boat approximately 75 miles off the coast of Chatham.

At around 2:20, the captain of the 92-foot fishing vessel “Gabby G” reported one of his crewmembers was experiencing chest pains and requested a Medevac.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew launched to assist, and arrived on scene at around 4 o’clock. They hoisted the 50-year-old man and brought him to Massachusetts General Hospital.
