A male cruise passenger onboard a Cruise & Maritime Voyages/CMV ship in the Outer Hebrides has been airlifted from the vessel after suffering with heart problems.

The man was onboard the 46052 GT ship CMV Magellan east of Barra Island when he was struck down by the illness.

The cruiser was on its 2nd day of a 9-day British Isles Discovery Cruise at the time of accident.

HM Coastguard received a call from the ship at around 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 28, requesting urgent assistance in order to transfer the injured passenger to hospital. Stornoway Coastguard search and rescue helicopter was launched to the scene and transferred the patient to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. His condition is currently unknown.

CMV Magellan is continuing its cruise to ports Portree, Kirkwall, Honfleur, Guernsey and Isles of Scilly prior to returning to Dublin.
