BALTIMORE -- The Coast Guard medevaced a man suffering from symptoms of a possible heart attack approximately 20 miles east of Ocean City Tuesday afternoon.

Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region received a report from Coast Guard Station Ocean City of a 68-year-old male aboard the vessel Morning Star suffering from symptoms of a possible heart attack around noon Tuesday

A rescue boatcrew from Station Ocean City launched with Ocean City Fire Rescue paramedics aboard. Once on scene, the paramedics stabilized the man and transferred him onto the Coast Guard vessel.

He was brought ashore to awaiting emergency medical services personnel in stable condition and taken to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin.

"The command center watch, in coordination with Coast Guard Station Ocean City displayed exceptional teamwork and communication skills in their execution of this medevac," said Lt. j.g. Nicholas Phillips, a Sector Maryland-NCR command duty officer.  "All involved personnel acted swiftly and decisively and were able to ensure the patient received immediate medical attention."
