Norwegian Dawn makes dramatic rescue

Date Posted: 07 Jul 2008
Norwegian Cruise Lines was at the centre of dramatic rescue scenes off the coast of Cape Cod recently, it has been revealed.

Norwegian Dawn was involved in two separate rescues, while cruising towards the tropical destination of Bermuda.

The NCL cruise ship received two different distress calls from sailors on separate boats within a 12-hour period on June 30th.

Andrew Paul Giglia was picked up 200 miles from Cape Cod and was found to be suffering from shock-like symptoms before Norwegian Dawn collected Hillary Bercovici south of Montauk in New York, where he had suffered a head injury while sailing.

Both injured sailors are said to be in stable conditions following the swift recovery operations.

Last month, it was reported that Valor, belonging to Carnival Cruises helped in the rescue of a number of Cuban migrants.
