A fisherman, injured this morning on a shrimp trawler in the Pamlico Sound, was rescued by the Coast Guard and Marine Corps.
It happened aboard the 67-foot fishing vessel Captain Alex which was near Swan Quarter. The Coast Guard says the 47 year old man suffered head injures when he was hit by a shrimp net.
A Coast Guard boat crew from Hatteras Inlet and a Pedro helicopter from Cherry Point rescued the crewmember.
The fisherman was taken to Carteret County General Hospital, but there's no word on his condition.
