HOUSTON — The Coast Guard medevaced a 44-year-old man from a bulk carrier vessel Wednesday off Galveston, Texas.

Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command center watchstanders received a notification at 11 a.m. from a Sector Houston-Galveston boarding team aboard the Beatrice, a 623-foot bulk carrier anchored in the Galveston Anchorage, that the chief engineer stated he was experiencing shortness of breath. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended a medevac.

When the boarding was complete, an already-on scene Coast Guard Station Galveston 45-foot Response Boat–Medium crew took aboard the ailing man and the Sector Houston-Galveston boarding team.

The RB–M crew brought the man to Station Galveston and transferred him to awaiting emergency medical services personnel, who transported the patient to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
