National Guard rescues ill cruise ship passenger
May 06, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press
SAN DIEGO — The California Air National Guard has rescued a man who fell seriously ill on a cruise ship hundreds of miles off the coast.

The agency says crew of the Holland America line’s Westerdam contacted authorities for help late Saturday and changed course to reduce the distance to shore.

National Guard aircraft reached the ship Sunday about 300 miles from Southern California.

The 73-year-old passenger, who suffered kidney failure, was flown to a hospital in San Diego for further treatment.

The National Guard crew was deployed from North Island Naval Air Station, Coronado.
