Within about 6 hours on Tuesday, Coast Guard Air Station Savannah crews have been called on twice to rescue a female passenger from the same Carnival cruise ship.
The first medevac from Carnival Pride was a 46-year-old lady who may have had a stroke on Monday. Heavy fog and low visibility did not allow for her removal from the ship until about 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 30. The passenger was taken to St.Francis Hospital.
However, at around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Coast Guard received notice by the same vessel that a 2nd woman, 64-year-old suffering from severe stomach pains, also required a medevac. The lady was taken to Memorial University Medical center at about 1:50 p.m.
Each woman was reported in stable condition, according to Coast Guard.
