Coast Guard Rescues Boater at Mouth of Severn River

A crew member aboard a boat in the Severn River suffered a head, neck and back injury, according to a press release from the coast guard.

Coastal emergency agencies were dispatched Saturday to rescue a 64-year-old boater who had been injured while on a sailboat in the mouth of the Severn River, according to a press release from the coast guard.

The US Coast Guard, Coast Guard Auxiliary, Maryland Natural Resources Police and Anne Arundel County Fire Department all helped assist in a rescue on the sailboat Joe Joe Bean, which had radioed for help at about noon Saturday.

One of its crewmembers had suffered a head, neck and back injury, according to the release.

“It was clear the man needed more advanced medical care. At that point, I made the decision to take over with the aid," said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Whitlow.

Whitlow remained aboard the sailboat, caring for the injured man, while the crew from MNRP towed the sailboat toward land.

Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary placed the vessel in side tow so Whitlow could leave his post as coxswain and board the sailing vessel. A crew from Anne Arundel Fire Department then arrived on scene and took over the rescue operation.
