The Coast Guard rescued an injured fisherman from a New Bedford-based fishing boat early Monday.
The Coast Guard said the 51-year-old crew member partially severed a finger while fixing the Bulldog's steering mechanism. The boat was about 60 miles east of Chatham.
The crew member was hoisted to a Coast Guard helicopter at about 7 a.m. and flown to Massachusetts General Hospital. His condition wasn't immediately available.
The remaining crew members fixed the steering, and the boat was returning to New Bedford.
