   March 22, 2020 ,   Accidents

The US Coast Guard (USCG) medevaced a male crew from Grand Princess on Saturday, March 21, so he could get medical attention. The USCG said the crew (in his early-40s) had been suffering a medical emergency (not specified). The USCG crew consulted a duty flight surgeon recommending the ship crew to be medevaced for treatment ashore.

For the mission was dispatched an RB-M (45-ft response boat-medium) crew out of San Francisco, to transport the patient to awaiting EMS personnel at Coyote Point, San Mateo.
