The Coast Guard was called just before 6 p.m., and hoisted the man from the sub's sail about an hour later.

The sailor was flown to Oregon Health and Science University where he was listed in good condition.

It was not known why the sailor needed to be hospitalized.

Navy officials said the submarine was from the base at Bangor, Wash., but security policies prevented them from identifying the specific boat involved.
