Military Technologies reports that the U.S. Coast Guard medevaced a 66 year old passenger last night. The woman was reportedly seriously injured after she fell down stairs on a Disney cruise ship at approximately 8 P.M. Monday evening. The passenger reportedly suffered a serious injury described as a skull fracture and bleeding.
The ship, the Disney Wonder, was about 50 miles from Galveston at the time of the medevac.
The Disney Wonder contacted the Coast Guard station in Houston to report the injury. The station dispatched a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew to pickup the injured woman and flew her to the University of Texas Medical Branch in stable condition at approximately 11:15 P.M.
