HOUSTON​ — A Coast Guard MH-65E Dolphin aircrew medevac a woman from the cruise ship Allure of the Seas 50 nautical miles southeast of Galveston, Texas, Monday.

U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders received a medical evacuation request at 9:04 p.m. Sunday from the crew of the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Allure of the Seas stating a 57-year-old passenger was unconscious and reportedly suffering from a possible stroke.​ The U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders consulted with the duty flight surgeon, who recommended the medevac.

A​ U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65E Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter (SRR) aircrew launched heading to the cruise ship Allure of the Seas to conduct the medical evacuation.

The Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65E Dolphin rescue helicopter aircrew landed on the cruise ship. Once the ailing passenger and the ship’s nurse was boarded into the aircraft, the rescue helicopter took off for land to transport them and transfer the sick woman to emergency medical services (EMS) personnel waiting at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
