Fisherman Medically Evacuated off Boothbay Harbor


On Nov. 16, the Coast Guard medically evacuated 49-year-old commercial fishermen from his 20’ boat some 5 miles southeast of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, after a fellow boater noticed the victim was in medical distress.

A 25’ Response Boat crew located the fishing boat, took the fisherman aboard and transported him to awaiting medical personnel at Station Boothbay Harbor. A second Coast Guard crew towed the fisherman’s boat to Carousel Marina.
