Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound received a request for the medevac of a 12-year-old boy with serious head injuries, from the Sophie Trettevick Indian Health Center on the Makah Reservation early Thursday afternoon. Airlift Northwest in Seattle declined a previous request due to dangerously low visibility.
Sector Puget Sound launched an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Port Angeles at 2:11 p.m. The helicopter crew landed at Coast Guard Station Neah Bay at 2:43 p.m., where awaiting EMS Sophie Trettevick helped load the unidentified patient aboard the helicopter.
The Coast Guard crew transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The boy was last reported to have a skull fracture and major head trauma. His current condition is unknown.
