Evac From Celebrity Infinity October 2014
Great photo job by the guy making this video aboard the Celebrity Infinity last week! That’s my friend Jo Ann, who cracked her shoulder socket in a freak accident on the ship after a nearly two week cruise of France and Spain. It was surgically repaired yesterday and a titanium socket installed. Jo said the French doctors and nurses in Brest, to which she was flown, were wonderful. They offered to repair it there, but a part was lacking and so Jo chose to return home and have the surgery done in her hometown in America. It’s hard to realize that’s friend of mine being helicopter evacuated by the French coast guard but it is heartening to see serious accidents can be handled by these cruise ships. They were great to Jo and her husband ( he had to dock in England with the rest of the passengers, then be flown from Heathrow to Paris and then to Brest—all arranged by the ship company.)
The patient is now resting comfortably at home.
