Watchstanders in the 5th District Command Center in Portsmouth received notification at about 11:29 a.m. from the 915-foot, Royal Caribbean International cruise ship Grandeur of the Seas, that a passenger was experiencing chest pains and shortness of breath.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, arrived at the ship, hoisted the man to the helicopter and transported him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, arriving at about 3:15 p.m.

“This case demonstrated excellent coordination among the Coast Guard, the crew aboard the ship and the staff at the hospital,” said Lt. Kamryn Jones, command duty officer for the case. “We were happy to get this man the care he needed as quickly as possible.”
