Habang nasa Red Sea ang barkong MV Maria, isang Pinoy crew nito ang kailangan madala agad sa paggamotan dahil sa sobrang pagkakahilo at hindi magagalaw ang kanang bahagi ng kanyang katawan. Kaya, nag-SOS ang Kapitan ng barko para kay Kabayan.
Tumugon naman kaagad ang Border Guards ng Saudi Arabia at dinala si Kabayan sa Yanbu Royal Hospital. Naging stable naman kaagad ang kalagayan ni Kabayan.
Nagmula pa sa bansang Indonesia ang barko at ang destinasyon nito ay sa Suez Port, Egypt.
