The U.S. Coast Guard Sector in San Diego sent a helicopter to a cruise ship approximately 150 miles west of San Diego yesterday (January 23rd).
The Defense Video and Imaging Distribution Services reports that a 69-year-old woman fell down a stairwell and suffered head injuries and internal bleeding.
The video was taken by U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Henry G. Dunphy.
The name of the cruise ship was not released. However, an AIS tracking site indicates that the Holland America Line Veendam turned around and began heading back toward San Diego.
You can watch the helicopter land after transporting the injured woman from the HAL ship.
The Veendam was last in the news when an elderly woman went overboard earlier this month.
