Cruise Worker Goes Overboard, Found by Another Cruise Ship

Cruise Worker Goes Overboard, Found by Another Cruise Ship

"We saw the cruise ship made a U-turn and started heading back".

A crew member for Norwegian Cruise Line probably does after he fell overboard near Cuba, then was rescued nearly a full day later by another cruise ship. The large cruise ship is staffed with more than 1,500 crew members and can accommodate almost 4,000 guests.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, released a statement that reads in part, "This is nothing short of miraculous". "Kudos to the Carnival Glory team".

Coast Guard dispatched planes and a cutter that searched more than 1,630 square miles in the Gulf of Mexico. He fell from the side of the Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Getaway vessel that was en route to Miami. A Coast Guard airplane, a HC-144 Ocean Sentry, immediately began searching for him.

Maguire said: "I had a couple of nervy passes in the first half - it's a big occasion and your first game at this high pressure". For Harry Kane , who scored both of England's goals , they clearly were. " Harry Maguire's potential is huge", said Southgate.

It is unknown how the crew member came to be overboard and the incident is being investigated.

Carnival spokeswoman AnnMarie Matthews told The Associated Press the man did not have any safety device on when he was picked up by the Carnival Glory and they "can only surmise that he was likely treading water the entire time".

The Getaway crew member was found alive at about 1 p.m. Sunday 21 miles north of Cuba and in stable condition.

A cruise ship crewmember rescued from the waters north of Cuba will be checked by doctors in Cozumel. 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".
