Coast Guard helicopter from San Diego rescues stricken fisherman 30 miles at sea

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter Tuesday rescued a 71-year-old man from a fishing boat 30 miles off San Diego after he suffered a possible heart attack.

The man was aboard the 56-foot commercial fishing boat Seeker when he collapsed, injuring himself. The crew called the Coast Guard just before noon.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from San Diego was dispatched to the Seeker's location. The man was brought aboard the helicopter and by 3 p.m., he was in San Diego for emergency medical care.
