A Coast Guard helicopter airlifted a 25-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman from the 'Carnival Splendor', and the same day lifted a 36-year-old passenger from the 'Carnival Dream'.

The Coast Guard informs that the cruise ship was approximately 135 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina when it requested medical help. An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, hoisted two patients into the helicopter and took them to New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, North Carolina, where they were reported to be in stable condition.
