Coast Guard Medevacs Pregnant Cruise Passenger From Disney Magic

News sources are reporting that the U.S. Coast Guard rescued a woman "experiencing pregnancy issues" on a Disney cruise ship approximately 180 miles from Galveston coast early today. 

A Coast Guard helicopter crew medevaced the 31 year old woman from the Disney Magic cruise ship and flew her to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. The captain of the ship requested the medevac late yesterday Friday night.

Disney reportedly said passengers cannot sail on a ship if they are more than 24 weeks pregnant.

This is the second cruise passenger medevaced from a cruise ship today.  Earlier this morning a helicopter rescued a passenger from a Princess cruise ship off of the coast of Australia. 

The U.S. Coast Guard video of the Disney medevac is below:
