The boat's passenger was suffering from severe abdominal pain and required urgent medical attention.

The Axioma's main salon was quickly transformed into a hospital ward. All the necessary medical equipment on board was assembled. «Meanwhile, a rescue boat was sent to Mowe 2, which took the patient» and his personal belongings to the superyacht.
