The United States Coast Guard medevaced a female passenger last night after she sustained a heart attack on the Grand Princess cruise ship.
The woman was described as 57 years old. At the time of the medevac, the Princess Cruises’ ship was approximately 80 miles southwest of Monterey, California.
The Coast Guard flight surgeon recommended that the passenger be medically evacuated to a hospital for emergency care. A MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from San Francisco flew to the ship and hoisted the woman aboard and flew her to California.
