The Coast Guard conducted a medevac of a 69-year-old man from a cruise ship Friday, 100 miles west of the Columbia River entrance.

The physician aboard the 781-foot cruise ship Bolendam contacted the Thirteenth Coast Guard District command center at 1:30 p.m. to request a medical evacuation for an injured passenger.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Astoria, Ore., hoisted the passenger from the ship and transported him to Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Ore., where he was last listed in stable condition.
