Medevac off Anholt
On Nov 28, 2018, a Danish SAR helicopter was tasked for a medevac from the "Crown Seaways". The ferry was enroute from Oslo to Copenhagen. At 8.28 p.m. the patient was hoisted north of Anholt.
Medevac north of Sjælland
On Nov 10, 2017, the "Crown Seaways" changed course north of Sjælland for a medevac by a rescue helicopter after a pregnant female crew member had encountered health problems. After a radio contact between the ferry and Radio Medical, it was decided that the woman should be taken to a hospital and a rescue helicopter was requested. After the rescue helicopter landed on the ferry to take the crew member on board, the ferry resumed the trip to Oslo, where it was expected to arrive on Nov 11 morning as scheduled.
Search for missing woman suspended
An SAR operation was launched in the morning of May 2, 2017, after a 57-year-old Taiwanese woman who was underway with her husband, fell over board from the "Corwn Seaways" next to Höganäs north of Helsingborg. The ferry was heading from Oslo towards Copenhagen. During the afternoon, a total of 10 ships and two helicopters from Denmark and Sweden were involved in the search which was suspended at 4.15 p.m. as it was deemed unlikely that the person could survive that many hours in the water. The Danish Defense Operations Center was alerted Tuesday at 11.50 a.m., a few hours after the ferry had arrived at Copenhagen and the crew discovered that one person was missing. By reviewing video recordings from the surveillance cameras, it was found out that the woman fell overboard at 8 a.m. so a search area could be defined. Both Sweden and Denmark participated with four vessels and a helicopter in the SAR operation which was coordinated by the Armed Forces Operations Center in Aarhus. The police did not suspect that there has been a criminal offense.Upload News
