04-07-2018

Around 3:20 p.m. on Saturday, the sailor went missing from the Norwegian Getaway

A seaman who fell off a Norwegian Cruise Line ship survived in the waters off Cuba for 22 hours before being rescued by a Carnival Cruise Line ship in the vicinity. The U.S. Coast Guard said the unnamed crew member was reported in stable condition.

Around 3:20 p.m. on Saturday, the sailor went missing from the Norwegian Getaway. He was found alive about 21 miles off the Cuba coast at 1 p.m. on Sunday by the Carnival Glory.

Before the unusual cruise-to-cruise rescue, the Coast Guard said it deployed an HC-144 Ocean Sentry search plan from Miami, an HC-13 Hercules plane from Clearwater and the cutter Raymond Evans, which conducted a search of more than 1,630 square miles.

A Coast Guard statement said the incident was under investigation.
