Medevac off Toulon
In the evening of May 8, 2014, the "Piana" which was lying off Toulon, informed the Center for Maritime Medical Consultation in Toulouse (CCMT), that a 70 year old passenger was in respiratory distress. The CCMT decided to evacuate the passenger, and the CROSS Med immediately dispatched a Dauphin helicopter of the Navy with a medical on board. The passenger was hoisted and transported to the St. Anne Hospital in Toulon for further treatment. The ferry left Marseille and continued towards Bastia.
