ABCNews is reporting, “A cruise ship passenger is lucky to be alive after she fell overboard from a mega ship in the Bahamas, Tuesday night.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, fell from the massive Norwegian Epic while it was sailing and rescue efforts were launched immediately, Norwegian Cruise Lines told ABC News in a statement. She is listed in stable condition.”
How many times have we heard of a passenger falling overboard and lost at sea.
Speaking as a U.S. Navy veteran, a man overboard is a frightening event.
Once you learn someone has fallen overboard, you must act quickly to try to locate the person while at the same time turn the ship around.
If you see the person, you can launch a small boat to recover him/her.
