A 64-year-old sailor was rescued after he became injured on his boat on the Severn River Saturday.

According to the Coast Guard, a crew member aboard a 22-foot sailboat called the Joe Joe Bean called for rescue workers around noon Saturday to help a sailor suffering from head, neck and back injuries aboard the boat, at the mouth of the Severn River near Annapolis.

Emergency workers responded from the Coast Guard, the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Maryland Natural Resources Police and the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

The sailor was treated initially by the Coast Guard and then by a crew from Anne Arundel County. The Natural Resources Police towed the sailboat to land. The man's name and cause of injuries was not disclosed, and no other crew members were injured.
