F/V ENTERPRISE Crewmember Injured and Medevaced Off New Jersey

At around 5:30 a.m. on April 18, the Coast Guard at Manasquan Inlet, New Jersey, received a radio alert from F/V ENTERPRISE, a 75-foot clam boat, that Joe Montgomery, 47, had been hit in the head by a dislodged pipe. ENTERPRISE was about six miles offshore at the time. Mr. Montgomery's condition was such that he could not be transferred by the motor life boat deployed by the Coast Guard, so the Coast Guard escorted ENTERPRISE to Point Pleasant Beach, where emergency medical crews awaited to transfer the injured man for further care.

According to reports, one of the Coast Guard officers said that the pipe hit Mr. Montgomery as a result of equipment failure. This underscores the need for all mariners to be prepared for emergencies, as well as to maintain equipment.
