OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - The Coast Guard rescued an oil tanker crewman after he suffered a head injury about 60 miles east of Ocean City.
The Coast Guard says one of its helicopters picked up the 47-year-old man Thursday from the Hellas Endurance, a 500-foot, Greek-flagged tanker.
The tanker contacted the Coast Guard about 6:50 a.m. Thursday to report the man needed immediate medical attention. The Coast Guard sent a helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City in New Jersey. Fog created low visibility, so pilots used radar to find the ship.
