Crew rendered assistance to passenger with medical emergency on board M.V Sabanto

On Wednesday April 24th, the M.V. Sabanto departed Supenaam stelling at 19:15 hours for Parika, when half-way through the journey, it was reported to the crew that a passenger had fainted and failed to regain consciousness despite attempts to revive her. 

The crew came quickly to the passenger’s aid to render medical assistance and placing her in the recovery position. The passenger was breathing. She was monitored for the remainder of the journey, while arrangements were made by stelling staff for an ambulance to be in position to transport the passenger to the hospital as soon as the vessel arrives at Parika.
