Coast Guard medevacs Grand Princess crewmember

SAN FRANCISCO — The Coast Guard medevaced a Grand Princess crewmember with a medical concern Saturday afternoon.


The Coast Guard was notified by the ship that a man in his early-40s with a medical emergency needed further medical attention Saturday morning. 


Coast Guard watchstanders consulted the duty flight surgeon who recommended the crewmember be medevaced from the Grand Princess. 


The Coast Guard dispatched a Coast Guard Station San Francisco 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew to transport the crewmember to awaiting EMS at Coyote Point in San Mateo.


The Grand Princess has been anchored in the San Francisco Bay since Monday.
