Canadian vessel Atlantic Condor diverted to Bermuda as a Canadian crewmember had abdominal pains which required medical assistance; with the patient safely transferred ashore and rejoining the ship later on for its journey to Canada.

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre [BMOC] spokesperson said, “RCC Bermuda was advised by local shipping agent Meyers, that the 2334GRT Canadian registered Supply Vessel Atlantic Condor was diverting to Bermuda in order to disembark a Canadian crewmember with abdominal pains who required medical assistance.

The ship was on passage from Vancouver, Canada to St Johns, Newfoundland. At around 7:30am the next day, the supply vessel arrived offshore and the patient was safely transferred from the ship ashore to Ordnance Island by the Pilot/Rescue boat St David, and subsequently transported by ambulance to KEMH.

“The vessel waited offshore, and following treatment at the hospital the crew member was able to rejoin the ship at 4:00pm Tuesday afternoon and the Atlantic Condor continued on passage to Canada.”
