(DEPOE BAY) - The Coast Guard airlifted a 40-year-old male from a charter fishing vessel three miles north of Depoe Bay, Thursday.

The master of the 40-foot vessel Mr. Max contacted the Coast Guard by VHF-FM radio at 11:40 AM requesting assistance for an unconscious man.

An HH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Facility Newport and a 47-foot motor lifeboat crew from Coast Guard Station Depoe Bay were launched minutes later to aid the victim.

The man was hoisted to the helicopter at approximately 12:18 PM and transported to North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City, where he was pronounced dead.

The man's name was not immediately available.
