The girl, whose name has been withheld, due the fact that she is a minor, wasa reported to have experienced seizures.

Unfortunately, heavy fog and poor visibility made it necessary for the Coast Guard to provide her with transportation to the mainland.

Coast Guard Air Station Los Angeles launched a HH-65 Dolphin helicopter about 10:25 a.m., with a flight surgeon onboard to pick up the girl and her father from Catalina Island and take them to the mainland.  

The helicopter crew picked up the pair and flew them to Long Beach Memorial Hospital at around 11:15 a.m.

Because the girl was a minor, no further details were available at this time.
