The Coast Guard rescued a fisherman who was seriously injured at sea early Wednesday about 47 miles south of Nantucket.
The Coast Guard said the crew of the Diligence reported that a crew member was slammed against the side of the boat after it hit a wave. The 48-year-old man had head, back and leg injuries.
It took two tries to hoist the man into a helicopter because of bad weather. The man was transferred to an ambulance at Hyannis Airport.
