Cruise passenger suffers suspected seizure

Liberty of the Seas

A passenger on board the Liberty of the Seas was rushed to hospital last night after suffering a suspected seizure.

The cruise liner had arrived in Dockyard at about 9am yesterday from Cape Liberty and was berthed at Heritage Wharf when the emergency was reported to Bermuda Radio at 6.45pm.

An ambulance was dispatched to the East End and arrived at the ship at 7.30pm.

The passenger was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment.

This is the second similar incident to take place in the past two weeks.

On May 7, a cruise passenger was rushed off the Crystal Serenity, which was anchored in the Great Sound.

The male passenger, who required “urgent medical care”, was taken to Albuoy’s Point at just after 2.15am on board one of the ship’s tenders.
