A U.S. Coast Guard aircrew medevaced a 27-year-old man from an offshore supply vessel 5 miles off Louisiana, Thursday, after losing his foot in an accident.

The captain of the offshore supply vessel Miss Aubrey Ann contacted watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston at approximately 4 p.m. reporting that a crewmember severed his foot after getting it caught in a line.

An Air Station Houston aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter medevaced the man to the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, in stable condition.

No further details about the man’s condition or the accident was released.

“Rescues like this are the bread and butter of operations of the Coast Guard, and this case is a great example of a coordinated Coast Guard response,” said Lt. Spencer Roach, the command duty officer at Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston. “The early and immediate call to the Coast Guard when the injury occurred was critical to saving this man’s life. When dealing with severe injuries at sea, seconds count.”

The Miss Aubrey Ann is owned by Louisiana Marine Operators in Broussard, LA.
