The Coast Guard on Tuesday airlifted an unconscious man from a cruise ship about 100 miles southeast of the resort.
The Coast Guard’s Fifth District command center was notified that a 52-year-old man was found unconscious on the pool deck of the MSC Divina. The Coast Guard could not identify the man as of Tuesday evening.
An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Atlantic City and an HC-130 Hercules airplane crew from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, launched to assist, the Coast Guard said.
Once on scene, the helicopter crew safely hoisted the man up and transported him to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, the Coast Guard said.
