Edinburgh news: RNLI launched to assist with medical emergency on cruise ship bound for the Capital

Invergordon’s Volunteer crew were paged to launch in order to assist with a medical issue on a Cruise Liner bound for Edinburgh.

The crew of six launched from Invergordon to the Cruise Liner which had stopped at the Moray Firth Fairway Buoy.

Two casualty trained crew boarded the liner when they arrived and they assisted a casualty and a senior medic onto the lifeboat to return them to harbour.

The lifeboat was met by an ambulance and a Rapid Response Team and the casualty was conveyed to Raigmore Hospital for medical attention.
