Rescue mission.......

....on a day at sea. I get restless and walk around a lot while my daughter likes to relax and read a book. when I climbed the stairs up to the next level, I noticed a lot of people watching a helicopter trying to get closer to the ship.

All we could find out later was that a passenger had to be airlifted to the nearest hospital.

We also saw a bunch of stacked deck chairs fly overboard due to the helicopter's down draft. not funny, they could've hurt someone.

March 17, 2011 - Caribbean cruise returning to Florida.
Interesting capture. Your timing was great to catch the action. Too bad about the person that had to be taken to the hospital.

Great shot of relief helicopter. As hospital`s are often to far we have a helicopter for urgent help.

Great capture but disturbing news. I hope the passenger will be okay. Scary about the chairs, too.
