Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue crews and the Canadian Coast Guard took on blustery wind and waves Thursday afternoon during a call for help near Prince Rupert.
RCMSAR 64 was called out to a fishing vessel for a crew member in need of immediate medical assistance shortly before 3:30.
The team assisted the Canadian Coast Guard crew already on scene at Squataree near Kinahan Islands.
Members nosed in their boat to the fishing vessel in 4-5 foot waves and 25 knot winds and were able to transfer the patient on a stretcher into their cabin.
The SAR team transported to the patient back to Prince Rupert where an ambulance was waiting.
