HOUSTON — The Coast Guard medevaced a 93-year-old woman from a cruise ship 90 miles off Galveston, Texas, Sunday.

The helicopter crew arrived on scene, hoisted the passenger and a nurse from the cruise ship, and transported them to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston in stable condition.
