An elderly female cruise passenger who suffered head injury was airlifted by Coast Guard crew and taken to a hospital early Monday, October 24, authorities said.

Crews aboard Carnival Imagination reported to the U.S. Coast Guard that a traveler had hurt her head after a fall and was having seizures, authorities said. 

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter was sent to the vessel, which was about 58 miles northwest of San Diego, about 2 a.m. A crew safely hoisted the woman into the helicopter an hour later, Coast Guard officials said. 

An awaiting ambulance at the Coast Guard headquarters on North Harbor Drive took the woman to a hospital. An update on her condition was not available.
