Two crew members and a passenger were reportedly medevaced from two P&O cruise ships within a 24 hour period, according to several newspapers in Australia.
The Gold Coast Bulletin reported that Rescue 500, the Queensland Government air rescue helicopter service, medevaced a male patient from the Pacific Pearl about 70 nautical miles east of the Gold Coast. Other news sources say that the man is a passenger who suffered a head injury.
The sick patient was transported to hospital while the vessel continued south to Sydney.
A cruise passenger and a crew member experiencing unrelated medical problems were also medevaced from the Pacific Jewel.
A video from Rescue 500 Brisbane via Mail Online show the medevac from the Pacific Pearl.
