Crewman airlifted from tanker offshore New York after being injured in fall

An injured crewman has been safely airlifted by helicopter from a tanker off New York, according to The Associated Press.

The medevac was conducted by the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) air sea rescue division after the man aboard the 2005-built Italian-owned vessel High Courage fell from a height of about 35 feet.

At the time, the ship was about 15 miles off of Breezy Point in Queens, New York.

The man, believed to be from India, was taken to a hospital in Staten island where he was said to be in stable condition.
