NEW ORLEANS, La. (KLFY)– The Coast Guard medevaced two boaters Thursday from a construction vessel approximately 20 miles south of Atchafalaya Bay.
The emergency medical technician aboard the vessel requested a medevac for a passenger experiencing heart-related issues.
Sector New Orleans watchstanders then coordinated the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew to assist.
Upon arrival, the aircrew lifted the two boaters aboard the helicopter and transferred them to a hospital for emergency medical services.
The passenger was last reported to be in stable condition.
