    97 Year Old Woman Rescued


    Celebrity Silhouette is a Solstice-class cruise ship

    A cruise-ship passenger, injured in a fall aboard ship, was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard while the passenger vessel was anchored in New York Harbor off Staten Island, yesterday.

    A Coast Guard spokesman says the 97-year-old woman was aboard the Celebrity Silhouette when she fell and suffered a head injury that required immediate medical attention.

    A Coast Guard flight surgeon determined the woman's condition needed medical attention and recommended she be transported off the cruise ship.

    The 87-foot Coast Guard patrol boat Sailfish, home ported at Sandy Hook, N.J., responded to the 6:20 p.m. call for help, and transferred the injured woman to shore. She was transported to a hospital by an FDNY ambulance.

    The woman, whose name was not released, was reported to be in stable condition when she was transferred from the ship.
