Medevac off Naples
A passenger aboard the "MSC Poeasia" got injured onboard a cruise ship while it was sailing in the Gulf of Naples and almost lost his finger. The cruise pship was sailing a 7-night mediterranean cruise which departed Palma de Mallorca on Aug 4, 2016. The finger was partially detached and needed urgent medical attention on land. Authorities dispatched the patrol boat "Cp 890" which took the man to the hospital Vecchio Pellegrini of Naples. A medical staff member also accompanied the man to the hospital where doctors hoped to attach the finger.
No defiencies found after ship broke lose
While the "MSC Poesia" broke off its moorings in the afternoon of June 15 at the Ostsee Quay in Kiel the gangway over which passengers were boarding the cruise ship could be evacuated in time before all seven stern ropes had gone and the ship pulled away, The "MSC Poesia" fortunately had some engines running so the captain could still react while the storm front was pushing his ship perpendicular to the basin and get it back using the own propellers and thrusters. There was no damage to the ship. The water police launched an investigation of the broken ropes which were meanwhile replaced but found no deficiencies. The ship was allowed to proceed to Copenhagen and sailed at 6 p.m. German report with photo: http://www.kn-online.de/Schleswig-Holstein/Aus-dem-Land/Gewitterfront-fegte-ueber-den-Norden
