Crew Member Medevaced Off Carnival Cruise Ship (Video)

A crew member needing medical attention on Carnival Miracle was air lifted by the U.S. Coast Guard from the cruise ship on Friday afternoon.

A passenger on Carnival Miracle, Elvis Valério, sent Cruise Fever the following video of the medevac that happened at approximately 4:15 pm ship time.

The Serenity Deck was closed off for two hours so preparations could be made for the U.S. Coast Guard to pickup the crew member. Carnival Miracle was off the coast of Mexico during the medevac.  While cruise ships have medical facilities on board to treat routine medical conditions, they are unable to provide all the services that a hospital on land offers. When emergency situations arise, the Coast Guard is called for a medevac.

Carnival Miracle is on the last day (sea day) of a seven night cruise to the Mexican Riviera. The ship is scheduled to arrive back in Los Angeles on Saturday morning.  Cruise Fever sends our thoughts and prayers to the crew member.
