Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger From Celebrity Solstice

The United States Coast Guard medevaced a passenger from a Celebrity Cruises cruise ship yesterday. 

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew performed a medical rescue of a woman from the Celebrity Solstice cruise ship near Noyes Island, west of Craig, Alaska, on May 30, 2018.

The captain of the Celebrity cruise ship contacted the station of the 17th Coast Guard District in Juneau, Alaska that a 61 year-old woman was suffering a heart attack. The Coast Guard station then dispatched a helicopter from the Coast Guard station in Sitka.

The Jayhawk helicopter crew hoisted the woman and transported her to Ketchikan, Alaska, where a Guardian Flight crew was waiting for transport to additional medical care.
