Sick sailor disembarked

A sick sailor was brought into Bermuda in the early hours of this morning for hospital treatment.

The 38-year-old Turkish national was brought into St George's on the pilot boat at about 1.24am and taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance.

The crew member had been on board the container ship Eclips when he was struck down by an illness.

The ship had been on its way from New York to Turkey when it was forced to divert towards Bermuda, and continued on its way after disembarking the sailor.
