A 1-year-old kid needed medical help on Saturday evening, December 4, and had to be taken off-board by the sea rescuers.

As the DGzRS (German Society for Rescue of Shipwrecked People) explained on Sunday, December 5, the Bremen emergency management had received the emergency signal by AIDA Cruises' ship AIDAprima at ~10:00 p.m.

The little girl on the cruise ship leaving Port Hamburg (Germany) urgently had to be taken to a hospital for further medical treatment.

With 3 emergency paramedics and an ambulance on board, the rescue cruiser Hans Hackmack set out and arrived at the 300-meter AIDAprima in a few minutes.
