The U.S. Coast Guard rescued an injured mariner Friday after he was found unconscious in a vessel’s freezer.

Officials say the F/V Island Enterprise was fishing 60 miles northeast of Cold Bay when crew members discovered the 57-year-old man.

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew was sent to hoist him from the vessel, before he was transported to Cold Bay and then Anchorage for emergency medical care.

The rescue marks the sixth medevac of the winter fishing season.
