An 88-year-old British passenger of the "Aurora" died aboard the ship in the morning of Aug 21, 2019. The vessel had sailed from Southampton to Funchal. The crew reported to the CROSS Corsen at 07.50 that the passenger had fallen ill. After a remote consultation of the maritime medical center of Toulouse and the SAMU in Brest, it was decided to send a Caiman NH 90 helicopter. Around the time when the staff was hoisted on board, shortly before 10 a.m., the patient was dead. His body will be kept on board until the ship has arrived in Funchal the next weekend.
