U.S. Coast Guard personnel rescued a fisherman who fell from a bunk bed late last week.
According to a Coast Guard release, the 57-year-old angler was injured on Sunday after he fell in the vessel approximately 50 miles southeast of Atlantic City.
After receiving a radio call for help, personnel at Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City launched an MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew and hoisted the man aboard the helicopter shortly after 6:30 p.m., the release said.
The rescue crew transferred the man to awaiting emergency medical services personnel at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City for treatment.
“When a person becomes injured in the marine environment, rescues can be complex,” said Thomas Peck, watchstander at Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay. “If you suspect a person may need urgent care, like the crew of this fishing vessel did, call us right away so we can get your friend or loved one the care they need.”
