ASTORIA, Ore. — A Coast Guard MH-60T Jayhawk aircrew medevac a person Wednesday evening from a Disney Cruise ship approximately 180 nautical miles offshore of Grays Harbor, Washington.

At 5:21 p.m., Coast Guard Sector Columbia River received a call from the cruise ship Disney Wonder reporting a 71-year-old passenger who appeared to be experiencing uncontrollable internal bleeding.

The 13th Coast Guard District Command Center and Sector Columbia River requested that the vessel change course toward Astoria to reduce flying distance.

An MH-60T Jayhawk Medium-Range Recovery Helicopter (MRR) aircrew from Sector Columbia River, Air Station Astoria, arrived on scene at 9:36 p.m. accompanied by a Life-Flight nurse to assist with the patient.
