A Coast Guard flight surgeon was consulted and recommended the vessel continue toward Honolulu. The man’s condition was stable and plans were made to get him to shore via water taxi. However, when his condition began to deteriorate it was decided that a hoist would be conducted when the vessel arrived 14 miles offshore of Oahu to expedite his access to a higher level of medical care.

The Dolphin aircrew launched from Air Station Barbers Point at 5:45 a.m. and conducted the hoist at 6:35 a.m. He was delivered to awaiting emergency medical personnel in stable condition.
