An Indian crew member of a Bermuda-flagged cargo ship was medically evacuated by the personnel of Philippine Coast Guard Station (CGS) Albay around 12 p.m. Saturday, January 25 at the vicinity of Albay Gulf Anchorage Area.

Reports received by Coast Guard District Bicol (CGDBCL) from Coast Guard Action Center Manila revealed that Pranavkumar Bhimji, 39, is suffering from abdominal pain while MV Kiel Express was underway to Melbourne, Australia.
