Coast Guard airlifts injured man from cruise ship

Coast Guard airlifted a man who suffered head and back injuries after a fall in his cabin from a cruise ship 100 miles west of Astoria.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Kelly Parker says the 69-year-old man, whom the Coast Guard did not identify, was in stable condition at Oregon Health and Science University after the Friday evacuation.

Parker says the man was conscious after the fall. A physician onboard the 781-foot cruise ship Volendam called the Coast Guard at about 1:30 p.m. on Friday to report the man’s injuries.
