Coast Guard aircrews evacuated an individual from a 167-foot fishing vessel on Saturday, July 2, six miles west of the Egegik River, after a land-based dispatcher stated the vessel needed assistance for a female crewmember reportedly experiencing sepsis-like symptoms.

Air Station Kodiak launched an HC-130 Hercules aircraft and MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew. The Hercules crew provided onsite communication while the helicopter crew hoisted the crewmember and transported her to Dillingham for medical care.
