According to the United States Coast Guard, the captain of the cargo vessel requested the medevac of a 34-year-old male crewmember who was reportedly found unresponsive by the crew.
Watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon who recommended the medevac.
A Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew was launched to the cargo vessel.
The Air Station Houston helicopter crew hoisted the patient and transferred him to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston where he was reported to be in stable condition.
