A SCAN­DI­NA­VIAN crew­man aboard a gas tanker four nau­ti­cal miles off-shore from Richards Bay, was on Mon­day trans­ported to hos­pi­tal in an emer­gency pro­ce­dure.

The crew­man aboard the LPG tanker ‘Con­ti­nen­tal’ was said to be suf­fer­ing from acute stom­ach pain.

NSRI Sta­tion 19 was con­tacted for med­i­cal as­sis­tance and the crew im­me­di­ately dis­patched Spirit of Round Ta­ble II.

An NSRI para­medic and tech­ni­cal high an­gle res­cue crew were put aboard the ship.

The crew­man was sta­bilised and trans­ferred to the NSRI res­cue ves­sel us­ing the ship’s man bas­ket.

Ac­com­pa­nied by an in­ter­preter, he was taken to the NSRI base from where an ICE Med­i­cal Ser­vices am­bu­lance trans­ported him in a sta­ble con­di­tion to hos­pi­tal for fur­ther med­i­cal care.
