HOUSTON (AP) - An ill passenger on a Carnival cruise ship is in stable condition after a Coast Guard helicopter airlifted her to a hospital.

The Coast Guard said Sunday that it received word Saturday night that a 51-year-old woman was having respiratory problems on the Carnival ship Magic. Authorities dispatched a helicopter Saturday night to a ship more than 180 miles offshore from Galveston.

The helicopter crew hoisted the woman and a nurse on board and flew them to Galveston, where the woman continues to receive treatment.
