100324-G-1330O-001-Coast Guard conducts medevac from Russian research vessel
CLEARWATER, Fla. - The Coast Guard medically evacuated a U.K. citizen, Wednesday, at 7:30 a.m., approximately 200-miles west of St. Petersburg, Fla. Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 7th District Command Center in Miami received notification at approximately 10:00 p.m., Tuesday, from the Geo Arctic, a Russian-flagged seismic survey vessel, that a crewmember onboard was suffering from hernia-like symptoms, 250-miles west of St. Petersburg, Fla., in the Gulf of Mexico. After maintaining communication with the Geo Arctic throughout the night, and monitoring 44-year-old Sean Kennedy's condition onboard, the command center directed the launch of an HC-130 Hercules aircraft, and an H-60 Jayhawk rescue Helicopter from Air Station Clearwater, Fla., at 4:40 a.m., Wednesday. After the aircrews arrived onscene at 7:00 a.m., crewmembers aboard the Hercules provided support and cover while the Jayhawk crew lowered a rescue swimmer and basket to the deck of the Geo Arctic. After safely transferring Kennedy to the Jayhawk, the aircrews returned to Air Station Clearwater at approximately 9:15 a.m. Upon landing, emergency medical personnel from Pinellas Park Fire Department Rescue 37, and Sunstar Paramedics transferred Kennedy to Largo Medical Center for treatment.
