Injured crew member airlifted from ship off Limassol

Authorities airlifted early on Sunday an injured man from a Russian flagged vessel sailing off Limassol to the Nicosia general hospital.

The Larnaca Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) received early on Sunday an emergency call from a Russian vessel located southeast of Limassol, requesting immediate transport of a crew member who was injured in the head after falling from high altitude.

The JRCC sent in a police helicopter and a specialised nurse to pick up the injured man from the ship and airlift him to hospital. Due to the severity of his condition, he was taken to the Nicosia general hospital.
