Coast Guard rescues sailor

PEARL HARBOR (AP) - A sailor who is in Hawaii for Rim of the Pacific naval exercises was evacuated from his San Diego-based ship.

The Coast Guard said a helicopter and a plane were sent to conduct a medical evacuation of the 22-year-old sailor aboard the USS Gary. The ship was about 120 miles off Pearl Harbor.

It's not clear why the sailor needed to be evacuated Tuesday night, but it was reported to be unrelated to training maneuvers.

The sailor was in stable condition after being taken to Tripler Army Medical Center.

The USS Gary is carrying a crew of about 200. They are conducting training exercises in and around Hawaii waters.
