Medevac off Roscoff
A 61-year-old man with breathing difficulties had to be medevaced from the "Queen Elizabeth" in the English Channel yesterday in the afternoon of Jan 6, 2018, and taken to Southampton. The ship diverted and approached Roscoff before the Dragon 29 helicopter which was alerted at 4 p.m. came to pick up the passenger. At 7.30 p.m. he was transported to the hospital Caval Blanche in Brest. After the evacuation, the ship resumed the journey to Southampton.
