Justin Erasmus, NSRI Port Elizabeth deputy station commander, said:
At 09h38, Monday, 09th January, NSRI Port Elizabeth duty crew launched the sea rescue craft Eikos Rescuer IV, accompanied by EC Government Health EMS rescue paramedics, to patient evacuate a 28 year old Filipino crewman, suffering a dislocated shoulder, from the container ship Value, sailing from Singapore to Brazil.
We rendezvoused with the ship 7 nautical miles off-shore, in rough 2 meter sea swells and a gusting 30 knot South Westerly wind.
The injured crewman was transferred onto our sea rescue craft in a chair harness and in the care of the paramedics we brought him into Port and he was transported to hospital by EMS ambulance in a stable condition.
