Royal Caribbean passenger rescued from Voyager of the Seas after suffering heart attack
Italian Coast Guard responded to a report of a heart attack aboard Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas, located 27 miles from the port of Ancona. The passenger, a person from Cyprus, suffered the heart attack while the ship was headed to Venice, Italy.
The Coast Guard Operations Centre in Ancona asked the Captain of the ship to anchor, interrupting the journey, so they could transfer the passenger to a Coast Guard patrol boat.
Following the transfer, an ambulance has took the patient to a hospital for treatment. Following the incident, Voyager of the Seas was able to start sailing towards the north once more.
