Check out Coast Guard teamwork at its finest! This afternoon, an MH-65 Dolphin aircrew from U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Houston launched to medevac a mariner from a disabled vessel after the vessel&#39;s captain activated his EPIRB. The captain reported that a mariner aboard was exhibiting symptoms of extreme dehydration. The mariner was transferred to medical personnel in stable condition, and with the assistance of Coast Guard Cutters Beluga and Tiger Shark, the additional mariners and vessel were transported to safety as well.
