Coast Gaurd rescues man who collapsed on cruise ship

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 51-year-old man who collapsed with a possible stroke on a cruise ship off San Diego was taken ashore by the Coast Guard and hospitalized Sunday.

The cruise ship Carnival Paradise contacted the Coast Guard at 9:50 p.m. Saturday to report the passenger was suffering from possible signs of a stroke, Petty Officer Henry Dunphy said. The ship's doctor reported that the man experienced convulsions during dinner on Saturday night.

A 41-foot Coast Guard boat from San Diego met the cruise ship just outside Silver Gate, the entrance to San Diego Bay. The man was transferred, then taken to an ambulance on shore at 1:40 a.m.

The current medical condition of the man is not known, Dunphy said.
