Pregnant woman evacuated from tour boat after “passing out twice”

A 32-year-old pregnant woman was evacuated from a tour boat off the coast of Portimão on Wednesday morning (August 17) after passing out twice.

The Portuguese woman was aboard the “Alegria” tour boat, which was navigating two nautical miles away from Portimão port.

She felt “unwell” and lost consciousness twice. Maritime authorities evacuated the woman from the boat and took her back to land.

She was then rushed by ambulance to Portimão Hospital, according to a statement on the Portuguese Navy’s website.
