Sick seaman transferred to hospital
A Turkish seaman suffering from lower abdominal pain was transferred from an oil tanker last Monday. Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre said.
BMOC said on its website that it was notified on August 15 that the Maltese-registered crude oil tanker Zeynep was diverting to Bermuda with a Turkish crew member who required medical assistance suffering from lower abdominal pain.
The vessel, en route from Galveston, Texas to Sikka in India, stopped off the island at 4pm on August 16 and transferred the patient safely to the Pilot/Rescue Boat St George, which brought him ashore for transfer to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
