Coast Guardsmen from Station Juneau medevaced a man suffering from a possible bowel obstruction, from a cruise ship early Tuesday morning.
The station dispatched a 45-foot Response Boat- Medium in response to a 3 a.m. call requesting a medical evacuation from Ovation of the Seas near Douglas, the Coast Guard said in a press release.
“The patient seemed to have minor discomfort but overall was in good condition when we transported him,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Seth Miller in a press release. The patient and his wife were evacuated without incident, according to the press release.
This is the third cruise ship passenger the Coast Guard has evacuated at sea this month.
