PORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Coast Guard medevaced a man Saturday from a tanker off Virginia Beach.

Coast Guard watchstanders at the 5th District Command Center in Portsmouth received a call from the 574-foot, Japanese-flagged chemical tanker Buccoo Reef at about 2:30 a.m., stating a crewman was experiencing chest pains approximately 10 miles southeast of Cape Henry.

An MH-60 Jayhawker helicopter crew launched from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, at about 4:35 a.m.

The crew arrived on scene with Buccoo Reef at about 5:05 a.m. and hoisted the man aboard the helicopter.

The crew then transported him to Sentara Norfolk Hospital in Norfolk, arriving at about 5:40 a.m.

He was reported to be in stable condition.
