The US Coast Guard came to the aid of an unconscious Iranian fisherman in the sensitive waters around Iraq's oil terminals, the guard announced Friday. An Iranian fishing vessel approached a US coast guard ship charged with guarding Iraq's two oil terminals in the northern waters of the Persian Gulf on Aug. 24 and asked for assistance. The US ship's medic gave first aid to an unconscious crew member, pumping oxygen into his lungs before instructing the Iranian ship's captain to return to port to receive additional medical help for the crew member.
