Fisherman passes out on boat deck

A PASSENGER on a fishing charter boat had to be taken ashore on Monday night after collapsing unconscious on the deck with chest pains.

Tin Can Bay Coast Guard met with the vessel about midnight to collect the man and transfer him to an ambulance. The crew and a paramedic took out Cooloola Rescue and met with Night Beat inside the Wide Bay Bar at Inskip.

With the vessels tied together, the paramedic went aboard Night Beat and stabilised the patient before transferring him to Cooloola Rescue and returning to Tin Can Bay.

It was believed the man lapsed into unconsciousness twice before they arrived back at base and he was put on to the AGL Rescue Helicopter to be taken to hospital.

Tin Can Bay Coast Guard was also involved in rescuing a Goomboorian fisherman whose boat capsized about 5km off Fraser Island.

The crew was dispatched to locate and turn off the Epirb, which was still transmitting a distress signal after the boat's owner had been winched to safety by AGL Rescue.
