A newspaper in Ireland reports that the Belfast Coast Guard arranged for the airlift of a 78-year-old woman from a cruise ship last night due to a heavy nosebleed. The doctor aboard the MS Thomson Spirit reportedly became concerned for the passenger’s health.
The Belfast Coast Guard requested the assistance of a Coast Guard helicopter based in Dublin which responded to the emergency call at last night around 10 P.M. The helicopter lifted the passenger from the cruise ship which was located just south of Strangford Lough.
The cruise passenger arrived at Dublin airport around 12:20 A.M. and was then brought to hospital for further treatment which stopped the bleeding.
