Colloid cysts of 3rd Ventricle have the potential risk of precipitating Hydrocephalic crises. We present a case of a young German sailor who collapsed onboard his warship while in international waters. Abrief glimpse offered of the paradigm of onboard resuscitation, a staged helicopter evacuation to our centre for emergency life saving surgery followed by evacuation to Germany where further elective surgery was undertaken. This is the first reported case of a Hydrocephalic crisis at sea with a good out come.
