RNLI lifeboat takes woman to ambulance waiting on shore

A cruise liner was forced to turn around on Sunday night
after a second passenger fell ill.

The woman became unwell south of the Isle of Wight and the ship
was forced to turn around and head back outside Portsmouth Harbour.


The vessel was already delayed after a passenger was taken
ill at Southampton Docks and had to leave the ship.


A Bembridge lifeboat met the liner and took the casualty,
accompanied by two companions, the ship’s doctor and a nurse, to the shore
where an ambulance was waiting for her.


The cruise liner Crown Princess was heading to Bergen, Norway.
