From the going up department:

A 22-year-old female crew member was taken off Norwegian Majesty about 7:30am this morning by helicopter as the ship was sailing about 150 miles southeast of Cape Cod. (Video is below.) The ship was on the second day of it's 7-day cruise from Boston to Bermuda.

The Coast Guard received a call from the ship at 5:22am advising them that the woman needed to be transported to a shoreside medical facility. The Coast Guard dispatched an HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter along with a HU-25 Falcon Jet to fly cover.

The operation was completed successfully when the helicopter arrived at the airport in Hyannis, and the woman was taken by local EMS to Cape Cod Hospital.
