BALTIMORE — The Coast Guard conducted the medevac of a 60-year-old man off a charter boat approximately 40 miles off Ocean City Monday morning.

At approximately 7 a.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region received notification from the crew aboard the charter vessel Moore Bills of a 60-year-old male suffering from abdominal pains. The decision was made to bring him ashore for medical attention.

A 47-foot motor lifeboat crew from Coast Guard Station Ocean City with paramedics from Ocean City aboard were launched. At approximately 8:30 a.m., the boatcrew arrived on scene and placed the paramedics aboard the Moore Bills to tend to the man. The Coast Guard boatcrew then escorted the Moore Bills back to Coast Guard Station Ocean City to awaiting emergency medical technicians and was taken to Atlantic General Hospital in stable condition.

He was reported to be in stable condition.

"The teamwork exhibited by Coast Guard and the Ocean City paramedics ensured the boater got the care he needed in a timely fashion," said Cmdr. Michael Batchelder, deputy commander, Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region. "I am proud of what all our Maryland first responders do, day in and day out."

pay more then you do in taxes that's for sure. I just think you need this type of service then you should have to pay for it. I have to pay dearly for my insurance sounds like a couple liberals sucking off the taxpayer! When was the last time one of you could afford an offshore charter?
