The Coast Guard came to the rescue of a woman aboard the Carnival Fantasy, which launches from Mobile. Video from the guard shows rescue crews dropping from a chopper to board the ship. They responded to a call of a 53-year-old woman suffering stroke-like symptoms Tuesday. The ship was about 40 nautical miles off of Southwest Pass, Louisiana when the rescue happened Tuesday morning.
A crew on an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter headed to the ship as well as a crew based out of the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile. Rescuers took the woman to a Louisiana hospital where she’s in stable condition.
