  • Fishing Trip And Wingfoiling Trips Go Ary

    Fishing trip off Alameda goes terribly wrong:

    Upon arrival, Alameda Firefighters found one male victim on the shore in cardiac arrest with APD performing CPR. AFD crews took over patient care and started advanced lifesaving measures while simultaneously deploying rescue swimmers to locate the remaining victims. This first patient was transported to a local hospital.

    AFD deployed seven rescue swimmers into the water along with the AFD Fire Boat. Rescue swimmers located three male victims in the water ranging from approximately 100’ to several hundred yards off shore. AFD rescue swimmers successfully rescued the 3 victims and brought them onto the shore where they were transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries and evaluation.
    29 Firefighters in total responded to the scene which included 3 Engines, 1 Truck, 1 Fire Boat, 1 Rescue, 1 Rescue Boat, C.A.R.E. Team, 4 Ambulances, and a Battalion Chief.

    Assisting resources included Alameda Police Department and the United States Coast Guard with a Vessel and helicopter.
