Miami Fire Rescue dispatched their fireboat to rescue the passenger. Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas cruise ship was just about 4 miles off Miami Beach when the woman was experiencing a medical condition that required an immediate removal off the ship.
The woman, who is from North Carolina, was taken to Bayside Marina, where paramedics took her to a nearby hospital.
"This is one boat ride I will never forget,"
she said when she took a picture with her rescuers, according to Miami Fire Rescue.
