Jan 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka Navy has rendered assistance to transfer a foreign patient onboard a cruise ship to a hospital in the Sri Lankan capital.

The Maritime Rescue Coordinating Centre (MRCC) established at Naval Headquarters in Colombo has received the information about a sick passenger onboard the German Cruise ship 'Amadea' which was heading to Hambanthota port from Cochin port India.

Upon receiving the information, Sri Lanka Navy has promptly dispatched a Fast Attack Craft attached to the Western Naval Command to the location of the cruise ship to get the patient aboard the naval craft.
