Coast Guard, Navy medically evacuate injured crewmember

A Navy HSC-25 helicopter crew medically evacuated an injured crewmember from a cargo ship approximately 362 miles east of Guam Monday morning.

A medical corpsman from Coast Guard Cutter Assateague requested the evacuation after being transferred aboard the vessel to assess the crew member's injuries. The HSC-25 crew from Andersen Air Force Base safely hoisted the injured crew member and transported him to awaiting EMS at U.S. Naval Hospital Guam. HSC-25 maintains a 24-hour search and rescue and medical evacuation alert posture, directly supporting the U.S. Coast Guard and Joint Region Marianas.
