A cruise ship returned to the Charleston terminal Wednesday night so an ambulance could pick up an injured passenger.

A witness said the Carnival ship left about 4:30 p.m., although that time was not officially confirmed. The ship was back at the dock around 8:30 p.m. A medical crew was waiting to pick up a passenger with a minor injury, EMS Director Don Lundy said.
