Video: Coast Guard Airlifts Fisherman 60 Miles East Of Chatham – The Coast Guard medically evacuated a fisherman 60 miles east of Chatham, Mass., at approximately 7 a.m., Monday. At approximately 3:15 a.m. Monday, watch standers at Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England received a report from the crew of the fishing vessel Bulldog, home ported in New Bedford, Mass., that a 51-year-old crew member had partially severed a finger while conducting a repair of the vessel and was requesting assistance.

Bad ass. It’s nice knowing that if I ever sever my finger 60 miles out to sea, some guys I don’t even know will hop into a helicopter and give me a ride to the hospital. Most friends will bitch and moan about driving you to the airport, never mind having to dangle out of a Jayhawk helicopter and pull you up in a basket.

I guarantee if I called ten friends right now, told them I severed my finger and I need a ride to the hospital, eight of them would tell me to man up and the other two would make a John Bobbitt joke. Thank god none of them are Coasties.
