Seattle Tugboat EAGLE Crewman Medevaced for Ribcage Injury

The crew of 98-foot T/V EAGLE contacted the Coast Guard in Seattle just after 8:00 a.m. today, asking for assistance with a crewmate who had suffered a ribcage injury while on board in Elliott Bay. The injured man was transferred in a litter from EAGLE to a Coast Guard response boat and then taken to the emergency team waiting at the Seattle Fire Station pier.

The man’s name or the exact nature of his injury hasn’t been released, but according to reports, he was heaving a line when he was injured. Records indicate that EAGLE is owned by Pacific Coast Maritime, Inc., of Seattle.
