The Coast Guard medically evacuated a fisherman 60 miles east of Chatham, Mass., at approximately 7 a.m., Monday. At approximately 3:15 a.m. Monday, watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England received a report from the crew of the fishing vessel Bulldog, homeported in New Bedford, Mass., that a 51-year-old crewmember had partially severed a finger while conducting a repair of the vessel and was requesting assistance. The crewmember was reportedly repairing a steering mechanism when he was injured, and the Bulldog was adrift. A Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Mass., MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew was launched, arrived on scene and safely hoisted the fisherman at 7 a.m.. He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston at approximately 8:45 a.m.
