ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. – A boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Mayport in Atlantic Beach medically evacuated an injured Carnival Fascination cruise ship passenger near Atlantic Beach Saturday evening.

The 56-year old man was reportedly experiencing stroke symptoms, prompting a request by the on-board doctor for a medevac.

After discussion with a Coast Guard flight surgeon, a decision was made to transport the man to shore via Coast Guard small boat.

A boatcrew launched from Station Mayport and arrived on scene minutes later. The man, two family members and a nurse were transferred to the 45-foot Response Boat – Medium and taken to Station Mayport for further transport by ambulance to a local hospital.

The man was in stable condition upon transfer. His current condition is unknown.
