A cruise passenger with serious health problems has been airlifted by Cyprus rescue services and transported to Paphos hospital early Monday, July 22.
The Crown Iris ship placed an emergency call fifteen minutes after midnight, stating that a 43-year-old Israeli traveler had been critically ill and needed to be taken to a hospital immediately.
The rescue coordination centre responded by sending a helicopter with medical staff to the vessel which was sailing around 40 nautical miles west of the port of Paphos.
The helicopter transferred the man to Paphos general hospital.
