Kolkata: The Andamans Coast Guards rescued three tourists on Monday, who had ventured deep into the sea, despite a weather warning and were washed away from the Havelock Island in Port Blair on Monday.

The three New Delhi residents were taken to a nearby health care unit in Havelock, when one of their health started deteriorating. Later, the Chief Medical Officer here advised to shift Neeraj Chandra to the GB Pant Hospital in Port Blair.

“We received a request from Director (Tourism) for an early evacuation of a critical patient to Port Blair. The Coast Guard transported Chandra in a Chetak helicopter to Port Blair. His condition is stable now,” Commandant Dalip Singh, Coast Guard, Andamans told News18.

The Guards say the visitors had blatantly ignored all the alerts and signboards and ventured deep into the sea.
