Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger From the Norwegian Dawn

The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an ill passenger a NCL cruise ship about 55 miles off the North Carolina coast today.

The Norwegian Dawn contacted the Coast Guard around 6:15 a.m., requesting a medevac for a 56-year-old male passenger who was experiencing stroke-like symptoms, according to the Carteret County News-Times

"This was our second medevac from this cruise ship in the past two weeks," Chief Petty Officer Shannon Brugh said to the newspaper.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, which was launched from Air Station Elizabeth City, hoisted the man and flew him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.

The video is not the Norwegian Dawn, seems to be the Norwegian Breakaway.
