Coast Guard copter rescues man on Unalaska Island

Posted: Friday, September 11, 2009

DUTCH HARBOR - The Coast Guard says one of its helicopters fought 45 mph winds to rescue an injured man from a cliff on Unalaska Island, 22 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor.

Thirty-nine-year-old Dan Young injured his legs Wednesday in a fall and activated an emergency locating device.

The Kodiak-based cutter Munro was on patrol in the Bering Sea and responded. It launched a Dolphin helicopter that hoisted Young and his dog.

He was transferred to medical personnel at Dutch Harbor Airport.
