Second Medevac This Week from Bering Sea Processors

Jay Barrett/KMXT
A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak Jayhawk helicopter crew medevac’d another injured mariner from a floating processor off of Cold Bay Wednesday. This time it was from the 680-foot Ocean Phoenix, the largest fishing vessel in the nation.
The helicopter crew transported the unidentified woman 75-miles back to Cold Bay for a commercial flight to Anchorage. The 25-year-old was suffering from severe chest pain.
The Jayhawk and crew are forward-deployed in Kodiak for the fishing season. It’s their second medevac this week.
Weather on scene was reported as 27 degrees, wind speed of 26 mph, visibility at 3.5 miles and snowing.
