SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A U.S. Coast Guard aircrew airlifted a sick woman from a cruise ship about 30 miles off the coast of Point Loma.

The crew of the Carnival Imagination contacted the joint harbor operation center around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The team successfully completed the medical evacuation on the 41-year-old American woman who was suffering abdominal pain two hours later.

She was transported to the hospital. Her identity and condition have not been made public.
