F/V Wizard Medevac

On Nov 7, 2011 the USCG Communications Station Kodiak received a call from the 150-foot Seattle-based fishing vessel Wizard regarding a 28 year old crew member that had collapsed and was showing signs of dehydration and shock. A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter operating in the area was able to medevac the man from the boat and transport him to emergency medical personnel in Cold Bay. The Wizard is one of the crab fishing vessels featured on the hit show Deadliest Catch and is captained by Keith Colburn.

The US Coast Guard Communications Station Kodiak released the audio recording from the distress call and can be listened to below.
