The Coast Guard evacuated a severely sick crew member of an India-registered fuel tanker which was in mid sea and brought him to Haldia for medical treatment in the early hours today, an official said here.

A Coast Guard vessel evacuated 27-year old Mridul Singh from 'MT Hansa Prem' at 3.00 pm yesterday after receiving medical evacuation request from the master of the ship, which was then situated approximately 100 nautical miles in the Bay of Bengal from Haldia Dock complex, which is about 120 km from here.

"The vessel requested Indian Coast Guard for immediate evacuation of severely sick crew member Mridul Singh, suffering from severe abdominal pain with swelling for last two days," ICG (North-East region) spokesperson assistant commandant Chitra Biswas said.

Coast Guard maritime rescue sub-centre at Haldia diverted ICG ship 'Anmol', which was on routine EEZ patrol, to provide medical assistance to the patient.

The on-board Coast Guard medical team administered initial medical aid to the patient and shifted him to Anmol, which brought him to Haldia at 00.30 am today, Biswas said.

The agent of the vessel was directed to keep an ambulance along with medical team at Haldia for further medical management of the patient, she said. MT Hansa Prem, carrying fuel oil and lub oil, departed from Ennore on July 12 and was scheduled to reach Haldia on July 18.
