The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) revealed recently that it medevaced a 45-year-old man from an oil tanker on November 19, 11 miles offshore Port Aransas, Texas. Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi command center watchstanders received a call at 4:23 pm from the crew of the Crudesun stating a crew member was experiencing symptoms of a stroke, the USCG noted. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended a medevac, the USCG outlined. A Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew launched to conduct the medevac.
