A cruise ship crew member who needed medical attention has been removed by a US Coast Guard helicopter and flown to Atlantic City for treatment on Sunday, October 27, officials said.

The U.S. Coast Guard sent an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter to TUI Cruises' Mein Schiff 1 at around 10:20 a.m. after the 44-year-old man began suffering abdominal pain.

The crew member was hoisted aboard the helicopter and immediately flown to Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City. The helicopter could not land at a hospital helipad because of poor weather conditions.

 

At the time of the incident, the cruise liner was around 20 miles off Atlantic City and en-route from NYC-Bayonne NJ (Friday departure, October 25) towards Norfolk VA as part of an 11-day Caribbean (USA and Bahamas) roundtrip voyage.
