A young make passenger has apparently been airlifted from a Miami based cruise ship after choking on a piece of meat while dining onboard.

Local news reports that the young passenger was onboard the Norwegian Getaway while it was near Port Miami yesterday evening, December 1st. Emergency dispatches mentioned that the man even stopped breathing at one point.

CBS Miami has posted a video of the man being medevaced from the ship via a rescue helicopter. An attempt had been made to rescue him by a small boat but the operation failed due to the weather conditions.
