A female crew member has been seriously injured while working onboard Legend of the Seas which is operated by Royal Caribbean.

According to local news, a 20-year-old female crew member suffered a lower back fracture and as a result needed urgent care at a local hospital in New Zealand. The crew member from India was taken by rescue helicopter to Wellington Hospital for further medical attention. It’s not clear how the injury occurred or if there will be any investigation. Thankfully the crew member is now in a stable condition.

The site also mentions that the rescue operation didn’t go so smoothly and it took around 20 minutes to lift her up to the Helicopter. The operation happened at around 2:30 on Thursday morning.

Legend of the Seas was sailing near Cook Island at the time and had not long departed its last port of call of the voyage in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. The vessel was heading back towards its home port of Brisbane, Australia where it is scheduled to arrive on January 29. The 15-day cruise called at many destinations in New Zealand including Wellington which is where the crew member was taken.

Legend of the Seas is a 69,500 gross ton ship which can carry over 1,830 guests at double occupancy.
