| Staff Reporters

The Coast Guard medevaced a 47-year-old man Sunday approximately 20 miles south of Gulf Shores, Alabama. 

Watchstanders with Coast Guard Sector Mobile received a report of a medical emergency from a 40-foot fishing charter that a crewmember was losing consciousness and reportedly experiencing seizures. The watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans MH-65 Dolphin Helicopter aircrew to assist.  The helicopter crew arrived on-scene, safely hoisted the man and transferred him to Sacred Heart Hospital for further medical care.
