Cape Town - A Filipino sailor with a suspected burst stomach ulcer was evacuated from a bulk carrier off Port Elizabeth, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said on Thursday.

Spokesman Craig Lambinon said the MV India, sailing from Brazil to Singapore, had diverted to Port Elizabeth to rendezvous with the NSRI off the city.

“On arrival on-scene the patient, walking... and in a stable and satisfactory condition, was brought down the pilot's ladder onto our sea rescue craft,” he said.

The sailor was taken to shore and received further treatment in hospital.
