The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) reported that its boatcrew from Station Mayport in Atlantic Beach medically evacuated an injured Carnival Fascination cruise ship passenger near Atlantic Beach Saturday evening.

According to the USCG, one of the cruise liner’s onboard doctors requested a medevac after the 56-year old man was reportedly experiencing stroke symptoms.

A discussion with a Coast Guard flight surgeon then led to the decision to transport the man to shore via Coast Guard small boat. A boatcrew launched from Station Mayport and arrived on scene minutes later.

The man, in stable condition upon transfer, was transferred to the 45-foot Response Boat Medium along with two family members and a nurse, and taken to Station Mayport for further transport by ambulance to a local hospital.

The USCG said the man’s current condition is unknown.
