Coast Guard Medevacs Passenger from Zuiderdam

The crew of Holland America's Zuiderdam contacted the US Coast Guard at 10:55am Sunday when the ship was 5 miles west of Tillamook Bay, Oregon.

The female passenger was found unconscious in a hot tub. The Coast Guard launched a 47-foot lifeboat from the Coast Guard station at Tillamook Bay to rendezvous with the ship and transport the woman to a local hospital.

Zuiderdam is on a 3-night repositioning cruise which sailed on Saturday (September 26) from Vancouver to Los Angeles.
