Default Woman overboard?

I thought I heard on the news that a woman was thrown overboard by a mentally disturbed man on a cruise recently. I think it was the Voyager of the Seas. Did anybody else hear about this??

Yes I'm sure that it was on another chat. They caught the guy right away. The women was from the US according to the post. Travalling with her husband, In Norway, must have been a vessel that allows passangers to boad and depart daily. According to the post the person got on in the middle of this couples voyage and it was just her bad luck to be in the wrong place at the time. The post said something aboput her husband taking her remains to Switzerland to be cremated. This seemed a little odd to me. It was either Cruis Talk, or Jasons I cvan't remember which.

Thanks Dave. That is so tragic. I don't understand how that could have happened.

This is sad.
