USCG Rescue Crewmember of Tugboat In Waters Off Portsmouth

The Portsmouth Patch reported that the Coast Guard rescued an unidentified male crewmember from the tug NAVIGATOR in the waters off Portsmouth. The rescue happened on Tuesday, July 9 at approximately 6:15 a.m., according to a Coast Guard news release. The crewman had to be medically evacuated from the tugboat, which was near Gunboat Shoals.

The initial call from the NAVIGATOR came in at 5:42 a.m. to the Coast Guard Station in Portsmouth. A rescue crew was immediately dispatched on a 47-foot lifeboat. They were able to retrieve and safely transport the crewmember, who had suffered a fractured leg, back to Portsmouth Harbor, where EMS awaited to take him by ambulance to Portsmouth Regional Hospital.
