ALB launched at the request of the NMOC to a dive vessel with a bent diver 14’ SE of Portland.
The helicopter had been tasked, but the vessel still had 6 divers in the water.
On passage to the position the lifeboat was stood down as the helicopter lifted the casualty for transport to the decompression chamber, and the dive vessel was back with the divers in the water.
ALB returned to station refuelled and made ready for service
