The U.S. Coast Guard medically evacuated a woman from a cruise ship in Hawaii today, after she was reported to be suffering from a medical emergency.
The 71 year old woman was evacuated from the Grand Princess cruise ship early this morning at about 1:35 a.m. reports the StarAdvertiser.com. She was reported to be suffering from stroke like symptoms when the crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point came to her rescue in a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter.
Ensign Celesta Brosowsky was quoted in the article as saying “We’re grateful the cruise ship crew took quick action, recognizing that she needed to be medically evacuated.”
The woman was reportedly in stable condition when she arrived at The Queen’s Medical Center.
Yesterday we blogged that a Coast Guard crew out of Savannah, Georgia rescued medically evacuated two passengers in the same day from the same cruise ship.
