July 28, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - A boat crew from Coast Guard station Ketchikan transported an injured 45-year old man from the fishing vessel Ocean Cape near Grindall Island at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Henry Beadle was working on the deck of the Ocean Cape when he was caught between the ship's power block and railing. The quick-acting crewmen aboard the Ocean Cape were able to free Beadle and revived him by performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Beadle was taken to Ketchikan by a Coast Guard motor lifeboat crew where he was transferred to emergency medical technicians from the North Tongass Fire Department.
