OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) -- The Coast Guard says its crews transported a man who suffered an apparent seizure aboard a fishing boat near Ocean City.

The 50- year-old man was aboard the 73-foot boat known as Dredge Monster that was in the ocean about 45 miles east of Ocean City.

A crew member contacted the Coast Guard around 2 a.m. Saturday and reported that the man had suffered a possible seizure. The Coast Guard sent a motorboat to the scene and took him to emergency medical workers at Coast Guard Station Ocean City.
