Injured man gets medevac from ship off northern Labrador
A crew member was airlifted from a container ship north of Hopedale on Tuesday night.
Major Martel Thompson said the man, 37, was injured and required medical attention.
"Essentially, what happened was the SAR techs hoisted down to the vessel, and then transported the injured crew member aboard the Cormorant helicopter, and then transported him back to Goose Bay so that he could be sent to hospital for additional medical treatment," he said.
Thompson said the man had non-life threatening injuries. There's no word on his current condition.
Search and Rescue isn't saying which ship he was on, or where it's registered.
