NEW YORK — A Coast Guard aircrew medevaced a 65-year-old woman from the cruise ship Crystal Serenity approximately 50-miles southeast of Montauk, New York, Sunday.

At approximately 1 p.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound received a report from the cruise ship Crystal Serenity of a passenger suffering with severe stomach pains and requested a medevac.

Watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew to the cruise ship.

At approximately 2:45 p.m., the aircrew hoisted the woman and transported her to TF Green Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island where local EMS crews were waiting. The woman was then transported to Rhode Island Hospital and her condition is unknown.
