Coast Guard Aids Woman Injured On Cruise Ship

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Coast Guard says its crews responded to help a woman who was injured in a fall on a cruise ship near Smith Point in Maryland.

A crewmember aboard the Grandeur of the Seas ship contacted the Coast Guard around 10 p.m. Friday night and requested a medical evacuation crew.

The Coast Guard responded and transported the 58-year-old woman and her husband to a marina. She was then flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

The Coast Guard did not provide information about her condition Saturday morning.
