Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger from the HAL Veendam

The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced a passenger from the Holland America Line Veendam on Thursday.

The medevac involved a 65-year-old woman who was suffering from leg pain. The HAL cruise ship was approximately 50 miles east of Charleston when it contacted the Coast Guard. 

The Coast Guard station in Charleston flew a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew to the cruise ship during the evening of April 26, 2018. The helicopter arrived at the ship around 7:30 P.M. p.m., hoisted the passenger and transported her to the Medical University of South Carolina Hospital.

The Coast Guard station in Clearwater, Florida dispatched a HC-130 Hercules aircraft to support communications coverage.
