USCG airlifts sick passenger from Royal Caribbean cruise ship Voyager of the Seas

The Coast Guard evacuate a man from a cruise ship 132 miles southeast of South Pass in the Gulf of Mexico

Watchstanders of the 8th Coast Guard District command center received a report from the 7th Coast Guard District command center that a man aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Voyager of the Seas, was reportedly suffering stroke-like symptoms.

Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans launched an MH-65C Dolphin helicopter and crew to assist with a medevac. Upon retrieving the man from the cruise ship, he was taken to Touro Infirmary in New Orleans for treatment.

“Logistics and timing play a large role in situations like this,” said Lt. j.g. Jennifer Ferreira, command duty officer at the Eighth District command center. “Because our crews are well-trained and because they were resilient enough to make such a long trip, we were able to get this person the care he needed. That’s the effort that public expects from America’s Maritime First Responder.”

The man’s condition is unknown.
