Norwegian Cruise Ship Member Found Safe After Mysteriously Going Overboard Near Cuba

Coast Guard searching for cruise ship worker who fell overboard

A cruise ship worker who was thought to have treaded water for 22 hours after going overboard is recuperating after being picked up by another passing cruise ship, authorities say. "We will be disembarking him when we arrive in Cozumel on Monday, for further treatment and care by Norwegian Cruise Line".

A cruise ship crew member fell overboard and was rescued by another passenger vessel passing by after almost 24 hours at sea. Thankfully, the crew member was found by Carnival Glory and is reported to be in stable condition.

"A Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crew was diverted to conduct search patterns at 3:30 p.m.", the Coast Guard said.

The Getaway, which left Miami June 24 for an eight-day cruise, returned to Miami Sunday.




The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a Norwegian Cruise Line crew member that went overboard near Cuba. A photo shows those who rescued the man, and cell phone video captured passengers cheering as he was brought on board.

"It was nothing short of miraculous", Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said in a statement. She praised the crewmembers who found the man, lauding their "amazing effort to rescue a fellow seafarer". More Coast Guard assets joined the search not long after. He praised the missing man's perseverance, and noted, "One of the things that the coast guard could never calculate when it comes to in search and rescue is the person's will to live".

Norwegian said in a statement that the Miami-based cruise line is "extremely thankful" to Carnival Cruise Line, also based in Miami.
