13 Month Old Girl Suffers Medical Emergency on Disney Fantasy
A 13 month girl was evacuated from the Disney Fantasy earlier this week after suffering a medical emergency.
WPTV.com reported, “The Coast Guard said the child experienced a problem around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday while the ship was 34 miles off the coast of San Juan, Puerto Rico. She required immediate medical attention on shore.”
According to CBS17.com, “A Coast Guard Station San Juan boat crew medically evacuated a 13-month-old girl from a Disney Fantasy cruise ship Wednesday just inside the entrance of San Juan Harbor.
The child, a U.S. citizen, experienced a medical emergency as the Disney Fantasy was 34 miles northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and required immediate medical attention ashore.”
“We realized this was a time-sensitive case, and that we needed to help this child get to a higher level of medical care as soon as possible,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Carlos A. Garay, Station San Juan 45-foot response boat crewmember for the medevac. “The excellent coordination and collaboration between our boat crew, Sector San Juan watchstanders and the Disney Fantasy as well as the cruise ship’s side ramp technology, allowed for a smooth approach that led to a rapid and safe medevac. Our crew is very glad to have helped this child and her parents, we wish her a prompt recovery.”
We hope this child is OK. The Disney Fantasy sets sail on multi-night voyages from Port Canaveral in Florida. Stay tuned to MickeyBlog for additional updates on this story as they come in.
