Plymouth frigate saves fisherman off the coast of Africa
SAILORS on board the Plymouth Royal Navy warship HMS Argyll patrolling off the coast of Africa saved the life of a Japanese fisherman with a serious head injury.
The frigate HMS Argyll was on operations 20 miles off the Cape Verde coast in the Atlantic when it received news that a fisherman onboard the trawler Wakashio Maru was seriously hurt in an accident 24 hours earlier. His crewmates had been looking after him after he fell into the ship's bilge, but his condition had worsened. The ship deployed its sea-with medical officers to the vessel to assess the casualty. HMS Argyll's doctor Surgeon Lieutenant James Perry, stabilised the head injury, but realised he needed urgent hospital treatment. As a result, the Lynx helicopter was dispatched and the injured fisherman carefully winched on board the aircraft and flown to the closest hospital in Praia, Cape Verde.
