Vessel Cap Jackson Collects Medevac from Tristan
The container carrier Cap Jackson arrived at Tristan on the evening of 20th April, to collect one of the zodiac drivers (Stephanie) from the NG Explorer, who had an accident during the visit of the Explorer at Tristan on Monday 19th March. She was taken to the vessel, which made a leeway in Boat Harbour, by the Rescue Rib Atlantic Dawn.
Stephanie had first been looked after in hospital by the medical team, and later moved to stay with an island family. She was soon well enough to enjoy island life, birthday parties etc., having been on the island for a month, although she just missed the annual Ratting day, by a few days. The community wishes her a full recovery and a safe journey home, to her family and friends.
