Crews rescue ailing man aboard fishing boat off San Diego coast

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - U.S. Coast Guard and Navy crews Monday came to the rescue of a 37-year-old man who suffered an apparent seizure aboard a fishing boat about 25 miles off the coast of San Diego.

The crew of the 47-foot charter vessel Joanna requested aid for the man shortly after 9 a.m., according to USCG public affairs.

The Coast Guard launched a 45-foot response boat from its San Diego Harbor station, while the USS Anchorage sent a doctor and a corpsman to provide medical assistance.

The personnel brought the stricken fisherman back to San Diego for emergency care, arriving in the late morning, officials said.
