EMERALD ISLE, N.C. (WAVY) -The U.S Coast Guard medevaced a man Sunday from a charter boat in Bogue Inlet.

At around 11:00 a.m., watchstanders at the Sector North Carolina Command Center in Wilmington received a report from the charter boat Nancy Lee III that a 54-year-old passenger was suffering spasms.

A 45-foot Response Boat Medium crew from Station Emerald Isle and Tow Boat U.S. responded to the Nancy Lee III. The patient and an EMT that Tow Boat U.S. brought to the scene were transferred to the Coast Guard RBM.

The patient was taken to Dudley’s Marina in Cedar Point for transfer to Carteret County EMS personnel.
