U.S. Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger from HAL's Rotterdam
The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced a 63-year-old woman from a Holland America Line (HAL) cruise ship approximately 60 miles east of Virginia Beach yesterday morning. The HAL Rotterdam was sailing from Boston to Fort Lauderdale, Florida when it requested the Coast Guard to medically evacuation a passenger who was reportedly suffering from stroke-like symptoms. At about 8:30 a.m. yesterday, a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter launched from the Coast Guard station in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The aircrew arrived at the cruise ship around 9 A.M and hoisted the ill woman and her husband to the helicopter. The Coast Guard flew the woman and her husband to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. http://www.cruiselawnews.com/2016/10/articles/rescue-1/us-coast-guard-medevacs-passenger-from-hals-rotterdam/Upload News
