Coast Guard medevacs 2 from grounded boat near Morehead City

NCPORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Coast Guard medevaced two people Saturday from a grounded 34-foot boat near Spooner's Creek just off the Intercoastal Waterway in Morehead City, N.C.

A crewmember contacted Coast Guard Sector North Carolina watchstanders at approximately 9:30 a.m. reporting their 34-foot boat ran aground with four people, which resulted in one man sustaining a head injury and another man sustaining a back injury.

Sector watchstanders dispatched a crew aboard a 25-foot Response Boat from Coast Guard Station Fort Macon, N.C., while SeaTow and TowBoat U.S. also responded.

The Coast Guard arrived on scene, removed the two injured members from the grounded boat and transferred them to a Morehead City Fire Department crew at Spooner's Creek Marina who took them to Carteret General Hospital in Morehead City.

"Thanks to our close partnership with the Atlantic Beach Fire Department, we were able to embark emergency medical services personnel aboard our boat and provide more-timely medical attention to the injured crewmembers while en route to the marina," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Matt Nelson, the Coast Guard coxswain.

The Coast Guard boat crew returned to retrieve a third person on the boat and took him to Spooner's Creek Marina while the remaining person stayed behind to assist with salvage.

A TowBoat U.S. crew salvaged the grounded boat.
