LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A passenger suffering a medical emergency was flown from a cruise ship off Southern California to a hospital on shore.

The Coast Guard says it was notified late Thursday by the crew of the Carnival Imagination that a 65-year-old man was having symptoms of a stroke.

A helicopter hoisted the man from the ship about 6 miles south of Long Beach Harbor and flew him to a hospital in Torrance.
