The United States Coast Guard News reports that a Coast Guard helicopter from San Diego performed a medical evacuation of 34 year old a passenger who was suffering from appendicitis aboard a cruise ship 35 miles southwest of San Diego on Sunday.
The Carnival Inspiration contacted the Coast Guard early Sunday morning and requested a medevac for the passenger.
An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter flew to the cruise ship, hoisted the passenger aboard, and transported him to San Diego for emergency medical treatment.
