Coast Guard Rescues Injured Crewmember 60 Miles Off Ocean City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (WJZ) — A man on an Greek oil tanker is rescued 60 miles east of Ocean City, Maryland.

Personnel on the 500-foot tanker, Hellas Endurance, called the Coast Guard early Thursday morning and reported a 47-year-old crewmember had suffered a head injury.

Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City dispatched a crew on a helicopter.

Due to low visibility caused by fog, the pilots used radar to locate the tanker.

The helicopter crew hoisted the man up and landed at the air station.

The man was then transferred to emergency medical services personnel.
