A Coast Guard aircrew medevaced a 48-year-old man with lacerations on his body and possible concussion from a ship about 20 miles south of Hatteras Island, Tuesday.
The cargo ship Titania contacted watchstanders at the Sector North Carolina Command Center, and reported that an engineer found a member of the crew semi-conscious, lying on the deck near a lathe he was operating.
An Air Station Elizabeth City MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew launched to medevac the man. He was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville for treatment.
