News reports show a mail passenger being evacuated from a Royal Caribbean ship, Harmony of the Seas, in late December.
A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter crew recently rescued a 91-year-old man from the world’s largest cruise ship.Royal Caribbean International’s Harmony of the Seas, an Oasis-class cruise ship nearly 1,200 feet (365 meters) in length, was 30 nautical miles from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, on Dec. 26 when the man began experiencing complications from a head injury he had suffered a week earlier.
Rescues with helicopters are not uncommon when passengers have suffered a severe injury or whose medical complications exceed the abilities of the personnel and facilities of the cruise ship on which they are traveling.
