The Coast Guard 17th District informs that it has taken off a 56-year-old male patient from the cruise ship 'Carnival Miracle' in Stephens Passage near Juneau, Alaska.

A 45-foot response boat-medium crew from Coast Guard Station Juneau safely transported the man to awaiting medical personnel in Juneau after it was reported he was suffering from a diabetes-related episode.

Coast Guard Sector Juneau command center personnel received the report from the crew of the Carnival Miracle and launched the response boat crew with Juneau Emergency Medical Associates personnel aboard to rendezvous with the vessel.

“A case like this highlights the training and proficiency of our boat crewmembers and interoperability with our local partners,” said Lt. Stacey Tate, Command Duty Officer, Sector Juneau. “Shortly after we received the call we were able to respond quickly and get the patient to a higher level of care.”
