Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger From Carnival Pride

 The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced a passenger from a Carnival cruise ship yesterday.

The Coast Guard medevaced a 72-year-old woman Saturday from the Carnival Pride which was approximately 50 miles east of Savannah, Georgia.

The Carnival ship notified the Coast Guard station in Charleston around noon that the woman was experiencing pneumonia but was not reacting to medical treatment. A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Savannah medevaced the woman an hour and one-half later and transported her to Savannah Memorial Hospital shortly after 2:30 p.m.

Was it pneumonia or Legionnaires Disease? My girlfriends and a group traveled on this same ship in early November 2016 came back with what they thought was the flu, pneumonia and was diagnosed with Legionnaires.
