Seniors evacuated from ships
Two seniors were brought to Bermuda in separate ship medical evacuations yesterday.
A 67-year-old crewman on the US-registered bulk grain carrier Liberty Grace was suffering from unexplained dizziness. The vessel was travelling from Galveston, Texas, to Malta.
Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre co-ordinated his transfer via the pilot boat St David at 5pm to go to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
The same rescue boat was due to meet the Norwegian Escape cruise ship at about 9pm to bring ashore an 86-year-old woman with a suspected broken pelvis, who would also be taken to hospital. It was thought the ship would then return offshore for its regularly scheduled arrival in Dockyard at 4pm today.
