Saudi border guards have rescued an American cruise passenger on Sunday, April 14, after he became dangerously ill aboard an RSSC-Regent ship in the Red Sea.

The 77-year-old traveller was on Seven Seas Navigator off south-west Saudi Arabia's coast when he suffered intestinal bleeding and chest palpitations.

The vessel contacted Jeddah's Maritime Rescue Coordination Center, which passed the details to Saudi Arabia Border Guards. The vessel of the border guard Fursan was sent to meet Seven Seas Navigator south of Jazan.

The doctor of the ship was given medical advice and instructions until the moment the guards arrived.

The patient was evacuated together with his wife, transferred to Jazan and then taken by ambulance to Prince Mohammed Bin Nasser Hospital.

Seven Seas Navigator, which was sailing from Salalah, Oman to Aqaba, Jordan, continued on her voyage.
