Coast Guard rescues fishing-boat crewman near Grays Harbor

The Coast Guard evacuated an injured crew member Saturday morning from the commercial fishing vessel Jackpot west of Grays Harbor. The man had been knocked unconscious, the Coast Guard was told, when a block came apart and struck him in the head.

After a federal observer aboard the fishing boat performed CPR, the crew member reportedly began breathing again but did not regain consciousness.

The rescue, before 7:30 a.m., involved a Coast Guard 47-foot motorboat crew from Westport and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Astoria. The man was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, where his condition was unknown.
