PORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Coast Guard medevaced a 63-year-old man Thursday from a 74-foot fishing boat approximately 55 miles east of Cape Henry. The captain of the fishing vessel Cookie Monster contacted Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders at approximately 10:30 a.m. via VHF-FM channel 16 reporting a man aboard his boat was showing signs of a heart attack and requested assistance. Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders dispatched a crew aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., to assist. The Coast Guard crew arrived on scene at approximately 11 a.m. and hoisted the man aboard the helicopter before taking him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk.
