TARPON SPRINGS – The U.S. Coast Guard “medically evacuated” an injured diver from a vessel located about 15 miles northwest of Tarpon Springs Wednesday morning.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg command center received notification about 10:33 a.m. from a crewmember aboard the charter dive vessel Narcosis, reporting that the diver had suffered injuries while diving and was unresponsive.

A Coast Guard aircrew aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter responded from Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater while a crewmember aboard the dive boat performed CPR.

The aircrew arrived on scene at 10:25 a.m., hoisted both the diver and the crewmember conducting CPR and transported them to Tampa General Hospital.
