USS Enterprise Rescues Overboard Sailor
By USS Enterprise Public Affairs
The Sailor was quickly recovered by a SH-60F helicopter from Helicopter Anti-submarine Squadron (HS) 11, assigned to Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1, which was already airborne as the standby Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter. SAR helicopters are frequently airborne during flight quarters as a safety measure.
The Sailor sustained minor injuries and is being treated by the ship's medical department.
