USCG medevacs US Navy sailor hallucinating onboard supply vessel
The US Coast Guard medevaced a man off a U.S. Navy supply vessel off the West Florida Coast on 5 February.
The 33-year-old male passenger was reportedly having hallucinations aboard the offshore supply vessel NAWC 38 and needed further medical care, approximately 200 miles west of Tampa Bay.
The US Coast Guard cutter Dauntless crew was diverted to assist and the cutter’s small boat crew transferred the passenger from the navy ship to the cutter.
The sailor was later transferred to Sacred Heart Hospital for further medical care in stable condition.
