Life Ring From El Faro Found
A life ring has been found from the cargo ship El Faro, which went missing on Thursday after sailing through Hurricane Joaquin in the Bahamas, the U.S. Coast Guard said on Twitter on Saturday. A search-and-rescue crew found the life ring in waters to the northeast of Crooked Island in the Bahamas, about 75 miles (120 km) from the ship's last known position before it went missing on Thursday morning, the Coast Guard said. A spokesman said crews will resume the search in the same area at sunrise. "Because we found a life ring, the assumption can be made that we are searching in the right area," said Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios. "When we commence searching tomorrow morning at sunrise, hopefully we'll be able to find something else. Every little bit helps," he added. This is the first trace of the El Faro, a 735-foot (224-meter) cargo ship with 33 crew on board that went missing on Thursday morning after it was overcome by heavy weather from Joaquin. The vessel, with 28 U.S. citizens and five Polish nationals on board, was headed to San Juan, Puerto Rico, from Jacksonville, Florida when it reported losing propulsion and that it was listing and taking on water, the Coast Guard said. There had been no further communications after a distress call received at about 7:30 am (1130 GMT) Thursday, the Coast Guard said. Search and rescue efforts continued Saturday, after covering 850 square nautical miles on Friday, but turned up no sign of the U.S.-flagged ship. "We are very surprised that we lost all communication with the ship," Mike Hanson, a spokesman for El Faro's owner, Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, said on Saturday. "The ship was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time," he added, saying Joaquin was just a tropical storm when El Faro set out from Jacksonville but later intensified rapidly into a major hurricane. maritime-executiv...

Medevac off Galveston
Coast Guard crews medevaced a 43-year-old woman from the "Carnival Triumph" about 115 miles southeast of Galveston in the early morning of Oct 2. At 3:47 a.m., the ship contacted Sector Houston-Galveston requesting a medevac for a passenger suffering from a suspected heart attack. Watchstanders launched an Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew shortly after and Air Station Corpus Christi provided communications and cover with an HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crew. The helicopter arrived on scene at 7:40 a.m. and hoisted the woman and ship's nurse. The air crew delivered them to EMS, who were standing by at Galveston Scholes International Airport, to take them to University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
