The Coast Guard Group/Air Station North Bend, Oregon received a request from the Coos County Sheriff's Office at 11:40 AM asking for assistance with moving the 41-year-old woman who was complaining of abdominal pains and difficulty breathing.

An HH-65 helicopter crew from North Bend was diverted to the scene after refueling and picked the woman up at 1:20 PM.
