The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced a 39-year-old woman from an NCL cruise ship after the passenger suffered medical complications around 40 miles east of Manasquan Inlet on Sunday night, September 1.

A crew member on Norwegian Escape placed the emergency call just before 10:00 p.m., saying the patient "was having issues and needed medical attention," the Coast Guard revealed.

An aircrew aboard the USCG's MH-65 Dolphin helicopter out of Air Station Atlantic City immediately launched to assist. Once there, they hoisted up the woman and her husband. The aircrew took them to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Pomona.

As of Monday afternoon, there is no update on the patient's condition.
