VIDEO USCG Medevacs Woman from Norwegian Gem

The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an ailing woman from the cruise ship Norwegian Gem on Thursday, approximately 220 miles southeast of Portsmouth.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 5th District command center in Portsmouth received a call from the Bahama-flagged, 965-foot cruise ship at approximately 11:45 am local time, requesting a medevac for a 66-year-old passenger experiencing complications from diabetes.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, launched at approximately 1:35 pm local time.

The helicopter crew arrived on scene at approximately 2:20pm, hoisted the woman to the helicopter and took her to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk where she was last reported to be in stable condition.
