Semi-conscious boater taken to hospital
A boater was taken to hospital after he contacted the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service in a semi-conscious state on Sunday morning.
According to a Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre spokesman, the 76-year-old, who was unaware of his exact location, called for urgent medical help at 1.47am.
The BFRS requested assistance locating the man’s sailing boat, believed to be in St George’s Harbour, and marine police unit Rescue One was sent out.
“A call to a local contractor revealed that vessel is normally anchored north of Emily’s Bay in St George’s Harbour,” the BMOC spokesman added.
Rescue One reached the vessel at around 2.55am and preparations were made to get the man to Ordnance Island, from where he was taken to hospital.
