Medevac in the early morning
In the early morning of Juen 11 the lifeboat "Theo Fischer" of the DGzRS-station Barhöft medevaced an elderly Swiss passenger from the "Nils Holgersson“ which was enroute Rostock-Trelleborg. The crew had informed the MRCC Bremen via VHF that they suspected a stroke, and short before 4 a.m. the lifeboat rushed for the ferry as a helicopter transport was impossible. 45 minutes later the lifeboat was alongside. The patient was transferred and treated with first aid during the return trip to Barhöft where an ambulance was waiting.
