A woman was medevaced from a cruise ship Wednesday near Noyes Island west of the city of Craig.
According to a Coast Guard press release, the 61-year-old passenger on the Celebrity Solstice appeared to be suffering symptoms of a heart attack. After receiving a report on the woman’s condition, a flight surgeon for the 17th Coast Guard District recommended a medevac. A crew from Air Station Sitka responded.
The woman was hoisted on board the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and taken to Ketchikan where a Guardian Flight crew was waiting to transport her south for further care.
