SEATTLE (AP) - The Coast Guard says one of its officers who was injured last month while rescuing crew members from a disabled fishing vessel in Alaska waters has died of his injuries.
 
In a statement, the Coast Guard said Petty Officer Third Class Travis Obendorf died Wednesday at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle.
 
The 166-foot Alaska Mist suffered a mechanical failure and was adrift north of Amak Island off the Alaska Peninsula. Obendorf's cutter, the Waesche responded, evacuated non-essential members of the 22-person crew, then took the Mist under tow to Dutch Harbor.
