Medevac off Key West
The US Coast Guard medevaced a pregnant 36-year-old woman from the "Carnival Glory" 109 miles southwest of Key West, on Aug 31, 2018. Coast Guard Key West watchstanders received a medevac request from the "Carnival Glory" at 11:22 p.m. for a pregnant woman who went into labor aboard the ship. Watchstanders diverted a Coast Guard Air Station Miami MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew who arrived on scene, hoisted the patient and transported her to local emergency medical services who then took her to Lower Keys Medical Center.
Cruise ship found missing crew member of other cruise ship
The crew of the "Carnival Glory" found and rescued a missing crew member of the "Norwegian Getaway" on July 2, 2018, about 21 miles north of Cuba. He was reported is stable condition. At approximately 3:20 p.m. on June 30, watchstanders at the Coast Guard 7th District Command Center were notified by the cruise ship that a 33-year-old Filipino crewmember was seen going overboard. The US Coast Guard launched assets including a Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crews, a Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater HC-130 Hercules airplane crew and the Coast Guard Cutter Raymond "Evans" which searched more than 1,630 square miles. The incident is currently under investigation.
Medevac off Miami
Miami-Dade first responders braved rough waters on May 12, 2018, to carry out a medevac from the "Carnival Glory." The U.S. Coast Guard reported that an adult passenger suffered a medical emergency and needed to get to a hospital. The ship had departed Port of Miami earlier in the day. The Miami-Dade Fireboat 73 met the passenger ship around 8 p.m. three miles northeast of the Miami Sea Buoy, which is approximately five miles east, northeast of Government Cut. It battled the rough surf and high seas to rendezvous with the cruise ship. The cruise ship altered course to provide a safe lee, blocking the winds and heavy surf to allow the crews of Fireboat 73 — and on the cruise ship — to work together in transporting the patient from the cruise ship on to Fireboat 73. The passenger was taken back to Port of Miami where Rescue 39 was awaiting to bring the passenger to the hospital.
