Medevac off Rostock
The lifeboat "Arkona" of the DGzRS station Warnemünde medevaced a 16 year old Swedish youth from the "Huckleberry Finn" in the night of Apr 3, 2018, who had suddenly fallen ill and was in need of immediate medical care. The lifeboat was alerted at 11.30 p.m. after the master of the "Huckleberry Finn“ had informed the MRCC in Bremen about the situation. The boat left port with an emergency doctor and two paramedics of the Injured Care Team (VVT) on board. Both ships rendezvoused 3,5 miles North of Warnemünde on Rostock roads. The lifeboat went alongside in winds of three Beaufort, and the medical team boarded the ferry through the pilot hatch. After the patient was stabilized, he was transferred aboard the "Arkona" along with his father. In the hospital on board the "Arkona" the sick boy was cared for until the land rescue service took over and transported him to a nearby hospital. The ferry meanwhile continued the voyage to Trelleborg.
