PORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Coast Guard medevaced a man Saturday from a fishing boat about 35 miles east of Chincoteague.

Watchstanders at the Sector Hampton Roads Command Center in Portsmouth received notification at approximately 10:45 a.m. a 58-year-old crewman aboard the commercial fishing boat Good News II out of Hampton was having trouble breathing and requested assistance.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, diverted from another mission at about 10:50 a.m.

The aircrew arrived on scene at about 11:25 a.m., hoisted the man and transported him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk at about 12:20 p.m. in stable condition.

“The case was a great team effort all the way around from start to finish.  It was truly a privilege to be able to go out and help a mariner in need,” said Lt. Christopher Pulliam, aircraft commander for the case.
