The Coast Guard was called on to medevac a man from a fishing boat in the waters off New Jersey.

A crewmember from the fishing vessel Debbie Sue alerted the Coast Guard around 9:45 a.m. Saturday that a 61-year-old man on board was experiencing chest pains.

The vessel was 75 miles off the coast at the time.

A Coast Guard helicopter was dispatched and, once on the scene, hoisted the man onboard.
