    An Air Station Kodiak helicopter crew was dispatched Saturday morning to medevac an injured crewman from a Horizon Lines cargo ship in the Gulf of Alaska. According to the Coast Guard, the 39-year-old man - who they did not identify - suffered from a chemical exposure and needed urgent medical attention.
    The cargo vessel “Horizon Kodiak” was about 200 miles from its namesake island when the call for help was made. By the time the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter arrived, the Horizon Kodiak had changed course and they rendezvoused about 160 miles offshore.
    The Coast Guard also deployed an HC-130 Hercules aircraft as a precaution for the long-distance medevac. The helicopter crew transferred the injured man to Kodiak where emergency medical personal were waiting. His condition was not reported, but in video from the helicopter, the man was on his feet when meeting the hoist basket on the stern of the Horizon Kodiak.
    Weather on scene was reported as 23 mph winds and six-foot seas.
