OREGON INLET, N.C. (WAVY) — The Coast Guard responded to a report of a medical emergency onboard a fishing vessel Saturday.
Officials say they received a request for medical assistance after a member onboard a F/V was experiencing a seizure.
The Coast Guard launched a 29-foot Response Boat crew to render first aid.
Once on the scene, the crew sent a CG EMT onto the F/V to help stabilize and monitor the patient’s condition.
The crew then escorted the F/V into the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, where Dare Central EMS was standing by to provide further medical assistance and transport the patient.
