Coast Guard crews medevaced a 64-year-old woman from the cruise ship Carnival Pride 35 miles east of Savannah on January 30.
BALTIMORE — A Coast Guard rescue crew has transported a woman from a cruise ship about eight miles off Point Lookout, Maryland, for medical attention. It was the third Medevac of a passenger on the Baltimore-based Carnival Pride in less than two weeks.
The Coast Guard said Sunday that a crewmember aboard the Pride called the Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region via satellite phone at 3:42 a.m. to ask for help for a 71-year-old woman suffering a possible cardiac event.
A Royal Caribbean Cruises ship that departed from Baltimore on a nine-night trip earlier this year has had 46 reported cases of gastrointestinal illness on board, according to company spokesman Owen Torres.
