A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak medevac’d a man southeast of Cold Bay Wednesday.

According to a Coast Guard press release, the 42-year-old was experiencing gastrointestinal issues aboard the motor vessel Elpida GR.

In response to a medevac request via watchstanders, an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew deployed from Coast Guard Cutter Stratton and reached the man about 65 miles from Cold Bay.

The crew hoisted the man and brought him to a commercial air ambulance, which then transported him for medical care.
