Coast Guard air crew has medevaced a 66-year-old lady after she fell down the stairs on a Disney cruise ship at about 8:00 p.m. on Monday, around 50 miles east of Galveston.

The master of the cruise ship, Disney Wonder, contacted Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders to report the injury. The ship’s medical staff coordinated with a Coast Guard flight surgeon to determine the best course of action.

The ship, which departed Galveston earlier in the day, was met by an Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew to pickup the woman, who suffered a skull fracture and bleeding.

The woman was delivered to the University of Texas Medical Branch in stable condition at about 11:15 p.m.
