By Globe Staff
A crew member of a fishing boat is in stable condition at a Boston hospital with a severely injured hand after being picked up from his boat in the seas off Cape Cod early this morning, the Coast Guard said.
The Coast Guard received a call at 5:15 from the 74-foot Teresa Marie III, which was 120 miles east of Cape Cod.
A Coast Guard helicopter flew to the scene and picked up the crewman, rushing him to Massachusetts General Hospital, said Petty Officer Lauren Downs, a Coast Guard spokeswoman.
