The Coast Guard medevaced a crew member from a tanker vessel approximately 35 miles offshore of Freeport, Texas, Thursday.

Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston Watchstanders received a report from the captain of the tanker vessel Tosna Star of a 36-year-old man who was experiencing shortness of breath. Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon who recommended the medevac. An Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew was launched to the scene.


The Dolphin helicopter crew hoisted and transferred the crew member to awaiting emergency medical services personnel at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.


The crew member was reported to be in stable condition.
