Date Posted: 2001-01-12

A passenger on a ferry sailing from Tokyo to Naha on Monday was suddenly taken ill and had to be airlifted off the boat by helicopter.

The 40 year old man, a resident of Taira City, Okinawa, started to have a stomach ache when the ferry was 37 km off Shikoku. The ferry, “Ariake” radioed the Maritime Safety Agency in Yokohama and three hours later the man was taken off the vessel by helicopter. He was taken to a hospital in Kochi Prefecture in Shikoku, possibly suffering from cholelithiasis.
