The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a commercial fisherman Tuesday after he was hit in the head by a crab pot.
Officials say the crew member was struck while the F/V Patricia Lee was fishing for golden king crab 190 miles west of Unalaska.
Air Station Kodiak sent two MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crews and an HC-130 aircraft to hoist the 27-year-old man from the vessel.
He was transported to Cold Bay and then Unalaska for emergency medical care.
Officials say he was in stable condition.
