A fisherman was medevaced this afternoon after complaints of chest pain. The Coast Guard received a medevac request at 12:20 p.m. and quickly launched a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak. The aircrew arrived on scene to the fishing vessel New Venture around 1:25 p.m., and safely transported the ailing fisherman back to Kodiak just before 3 p.m. for further medical care. At the time of the medevac, the New Venture was located in the Shelikof Strait, 95 miles west of Kodiak.
