A memorial cruise to commemorate the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic has been forced to turn back after a cameraman suffered a suspected heart attack, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Tim Rex, 56, was believed to need medical treatment and a rescue helicopter was sent to the ship, MS Balmoral, which stopped off at the Irish port of Cobh.

Miles Morgan, Managing Director of Miles Morgan Travel which chartered the journey, was unable to say whether the delay would stop the ship from reaching the spot where the Titanic sank in time for the planned memorial. (点击《每日电讯报》查看原文)
