A cruise member aboard a Holland America cruise ship was seriously injured last week.
On Friday the Italian Coast Guard responded to the Westerdam cruise ship after it issued a distress call due to an urgent medical matter aboard the ship. After arriving at the ship, authorities found a crew member unconscious on the vessel, and decided that a medevac was the best option.
The crew member was loaded onto a patrol boat and sped to a hospital in the area. No details were released as to the nature of the incident which resulted in the crew member’s injury, the identity of the worker, or his or her prognosis.
