PHILADELPHIA – A Coast Guard aircrew medevaced a man from a fishing boat about 70 miles southeast of Cape May, New Jersey, Wednesday.

The crew of the fishing boat Relentless called the Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay Command Center at about 1 p.m. and reported that a crewmember was experiencing chest pains and needed medical attention. The Relentless was at an offshore fishing ground, about four hours from port.

An Air Station Atlantic City MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew flew out to medevac him for faster access to medical support. They transported him to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center; he was reported to be in stable condition.
