PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - The Coast Guard says a cruise ship passenger is in stable condition after suffering a possible head injury.

A Coast Guard crew and personnel from the Virginia Beach Fire Department transferred the 93-year-old man and his wife from the Grandeur of the Seas to a Coast Guard boat around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. The couple was taken to Station Little Creek. Local emergency medical services then took the man to Virginia Beach General Hospital.

The Coast Guard says in a news release that the 915-foot cruise ship was in the lower Chesapeake Bay when crew members contacted the Coast Guard around 9 p.m. Saturday.
