PORTSMOUTH, Va. - An 87 year old woman had to be medevaced from a cruise ship east of Ocracoke.

Watchstanders launched a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew and flight surgeon from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C.

The woman was hoisted aboard and transferred to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. She was last listed in stable condition.
