A 48-year-old female passenger suffering from seizures has been evacuated from Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas ship off Sandy Hook Thursday night, July 12.

The cruiser was sailing 18 miles southeast of Ambrose sea buoy, having left port of Cape Liberty in Bayonne for Bermuda a few hours earlier. Boat crew from CG Station Sandy Hook launched in response to the medical emergency onboard, according to Coast Guard's statement.
