ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) -- A Coast Guard helicopter crew has plucked an ailing fishing boat crewman from a vessel off the southwest Washington coast and flown him to a waiting medical team.

The unidentified man was reportedly suffering seizures Monday aboard the fishing boat Dorby S, which was about seven miles west of Long Beach, Wash.

The agency says personnel responded from Ilwaco, Wash., and from Air Station Astoria in Oregon.
