A couple saw man jump from Carnival ship near Cozumel

A 39 year old married man was on a cruise near Cozumel when he was seen jumping into the ocean from the top deck of a Carnival cruise ship on Friday the 23rd.    The cruise ship hung out for a bit before a bunch of other boats started searching and Mexican officials took over.   The man jumped around 6:30pm in the evening.  Unfortunately, it's not that uncommon for people to commit suicide via jumping off a cruise ship.

All the passengers got a letter explaining the situation before the ship continued on it's 7 night cruise.   The ship captain, Antonio Sammartano, wrote to the other ship guests:  "We're sorry to say that at this time, the missing guest has not been located.  However, the Mexican navy remains on site and continues with the search," he wrote, "We continue to provide support to his family and friends during this difficult time. We ask that you please continue to join us in keeping them in your thoughts and prayers."

  1. What a selfish way to hold up other people's vacation... I wish that this would end better for people, but it rarely does.
