A Coast Guard aircrew medically evacuated a woman from a cruise ship Friday after she began experiencing internal bleeding nearly 600 miles south of San Diego.

The crew of the Carnival Miracle contacted the Joint Harbor Operation Center Thursday evening, requesting a medevac for the 34-year-old. A helicopter crew launched from Coast Guard Sector San Diego met the ship, which was nearly 300 miles south of San Diego at the time of the medevac.

The crew transported the woman to Sector San Diego, where she was transferred to emergency medical personnel for further care.
