A 47-year-old man was medevaced from the Celebrity Reflection cruise ship during the morning of April 20, some 35 nautical miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico, the United States Coast Guard informed.

The man, who was in medical distress, was transported along with a cruise ship nurse to the Centro Medico Hospital in San Juan.

Watchstanders with the Coast Guard Sector San Juan Command Center were contacted by the crew of the Celebrity Reflection, who requested Coast Guard assistance in transporting the passenger to a local hospital.

A Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen MH-65 Dolphin helicopter was launched to take the patient from the cruise ship, owned by US-based cruise line Celebrity Cruises.

Upon arriving on scene with the Celebrity Reflection, the USCG helicopter crew hoisted the patient and cruise ship nurse onboard the aircraft and transported them to the Centro Medico Hospital in San Juan, where the patient was received by awaiting emergency medical personnel.
