A crew member on the Fish Hawk called the Coast Guard just after 8:30 a.m. Saturday to report that a passenger had suffered a head injury and was unconscious.

Petty Officer Jonathan Lindberg told The Press of Atlantic City that the Coast Guard arrived and continued the crew's resuscitation attempts during the 9-mile trip to Cape May.

The man was pronounced dead on shore. His name was not immediately released.
