Carnival cruise ship passenger blown up 200 miles off Cape Cod after falling ill: Coast Guard

A woman who fell ill Monday on a Carnival cruise ship more than 200 miles off the coast of Cape Cod had to be flown to a hospital.

The cruise line’s Legend ship was on day two of a 14-day voyage to Greenland when the crew called the Coast Guard for help around 6:30 p.m

One passenger had abdominal pain and was vomiting all day, according to the USCG said in a statement.

The military based its MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter on the 12-deck ship, which was 180 nautical miles from the airbase.

The Legend made a sharp left turn toward the easternmost tip of the cape to meet the flight crew closer to shore. Show the chart data from Carnival.

Upon arrival just before 10:30 p.m., the crew “lifted the cruise ship’s patient and nurse safely,” the military said.

The cruise passenger reportedly vomited due to abdominal pain and had to be flown by plane.
