Coast Guard Evacuates Injured Woman From Cruise Ship

Press Release
Wednesday, April 11, 2012

NEW YORK – A Coast Guard cutter crew medically evacuated a 97-year-old woman from a cruise ship in New York Harbor on April 10, 2012.

The crew of the cruise ship Celebrity Silhouette requested medical assistance for the woman at 6:20 p.m. The woman reportedly fell and suffered a head injury.

A Coast Guard flight surgeon determined that the woman’s condition needed medical attention and recommended that she be transported off the cruise ship, which was anchored off Staten Island, N.Y.

Crew members of the Coast Guard Cutter Sailfish, an 87-foot patrol boat home-ported in Sandy Hook, N.J., transferred the injured woman off the cruise ship to their cutter and transported her to shore, where awaiting emergency medical services took custody of her. A New York City Fire Department emergency medical technician was aboard the cutter to assist the woman during the transfer.

The woman was reportedly in stable condition at the time of the transfer.
