Vienne, France
from MS Maribelle Photos



An ambulance came to the rescue of a passenger on the MS Maribelle who showed symptoms of a heart attack. After being examined by paramedics, the passenger was taken to the Vienne hospital's cardiac unit.

A few days later, the passenger returned to the ship in good health. He also had a story that should send a message to the francophobic "freedom fries" crowd: When he was released from the hospital at 10 p.m., he was invited to spend the night at his anaesthesiologist's house before leaving for the ship the next day.
