JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a 31-year-old passenger from a cruise ship off the Atlantic Coast of Florida.
Coast Guard officials said in a news release that the crew of the Carnival Sunshine notified them on Monday night that a passenger was in need of “a higher level of medical care.”
A crew from Coast Guard Station Port Canaveral launched at 11:07 p.m. Monday. They got the passenger on board and took him to the port, where a rescue crew was waiting. The passenger was taken to a hospital for treatment.
The agency didn’t say what was wrong with the passenger. His name wasn’t released.
