Sick fishermen airlifted to hospital

A lobster fisherman was aiflifted to hospital from off the southwest coast yesterday. The call went out from a boat off Clark’s Harbour that a 32 year old crewman was suffering chest pains.

A Cormorant helicopter from 413 Squadron was sent out to pick him up and fly him to Yarmouth General Hospital. The whole operation only took a couple of hours as emergency crews were on standby as the lobster season just opened this week and the weather hasn’t been the best.
