Boy injured on cruise ship flown to the hospital by the Coast Guard

The Coast Guard evacuated a four-year-old boy from a Norwegian Breakaway cruise ship 100 miles southeast of Atlantic City after he suffered a head injury, NBC40 reported on July 28.

According to a report by a Norwegian Breakaway staff member, the boy fell from his bunk bed and incurred a head injury. The Coast Guard Fifth District Command Center was contacted around 9:45 a.m. about the incident. The helicopter crew managed to reach the cruise ship at 3 p.m. and carried the boy and his mother aboard to transport them to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. Hospital administrators have reported that the boy is now in stable condition.

Cruises are a convenient way for many Americans to vacation, however, if an accident were to occur, there is often not proper medical care available. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, discuss your legal options with the attorneys at Louis A. Vucci, P.A., today by calling (786) 375-0344.
