Personnel aboard the 950-foot cruise ship Carnival Splendor notified watchstanders at the Fifth District Command Center of the man’s condition at approximately 10:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Coast Guard watchstanders then launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., to assist. The helicopter crew arrived on scene at approximately 1:30 a.m., hoisted the man and took him to Wilmington International Airport. An ambulance crew at the airport took the man to New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

The man was listed in stable condition.
