A 68-year-old man experiencing chest pains was airlifted from a cruise ship 140 miles out to sea on Saturday, authorities said.

San Diego Harbor Police received a report of the man’s condition just after 2:30 a.m. from the ship, Rotterdam, which was 140 miles offshore, according to Allyson Conroy, a Coast Guard spokeswoman.
