A cruise ship passenger is in stable condition at a Plaquemines Parish hospital following a medical emergency.
A Coast Guard crew from New Orleans responded to the Carnival Elation just before 5:00 this morning. At the time, the ship was located near Southwest Pass.
Officials say the passenger was suffering from symptoms of deep vein thrombosis.
