RMS St Helena lands patient at Walvis Bay and sails on

A patient has been transferred to hospital in Namibia from the RMS St Helena after the ship diverted by 399 nautical miles to put them ashore.

St Helena Government issued for the following statement on Tuesday, 28 January 2014:

At 2.30pm this afternoon, local time, the RMS arrived at the pilot station in Walvis Bay, Namibia, as planned.
Shortly after, two paramedics came onboard from a launch, and the patient was prepared for evacuation. The transfer went smoothly and family members accompanied the patient, who has now been transferred to hospital.
At 3.40pm local time, the operation was complete and the RMS departed Walvis Bay for St Helena. The RMS will monitor her speed over the next 12 hours and advise accordingly on the estimated time of arrival at St Helena.
Credit goes to the crew and medical team for a rapid and professional response.

No information has been given about the nature of the medical emergency that prompted the rare decision to change course on Monday, two days after the ship left Cape Town.
