The U.S. Coast Guard continued its search Friday morning for a 37-year-old man who fell overboard from a cruise ship.
The Coast Guard first tweeted Thursday evening that the man fell from the cruise ship Carnival Victory approximately 30 miles northwest of Cuba. They tweeted again Friday morning to confirm that the search was ongoing. The ship was traveling from Cozumel, Mexico, to Miami on a four-day cruise when the man was seen going overboard.
A Carnival spokesperson said “all appropriate authorities, including the United States Coast Guard,” were notified of the incident.
“The ship’s command immediately returned to the location where the crew member was last seen and initiated search and rescue activities, which are ongoing,” the Carnival spokesperson said.
