  • Body recovered of senior missing from cruise ship off B.C. coast

The U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an 89-year-old man suffering from a stroke from a Carnival cruise ship on Monday.

At least one Canadian plane has been assigned to the search, but officials with the Vancouver-Island-based Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre says it is not handling the case since it happened in US waters.

A Coast Guard helicopter rescue crew recovered the unresponsive man from the water Tuesday afternoon and flew him to a waiting Emergency Medical Service crew on shore.

The man, suffering from chest pains and accompanied by a nurse, was taken to Cheshire Hall Medical Centre in Turks & Caicos around 6:45 p.m.

"We offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim".

KOMO reports the captain of the Seven Seas Mariner said onboard video showed the man either falling or jumping from the eighth deck balcony.
