He must not have been trying too hard to commit suicide if he was still treading water an hour after he jumped.

It always seems like Carnival when someone goes overboard. He is lucky someone saw go over. Someone in another post said it was his nagging wife that caused him to go.... Now he has to listen to her again. I can hear her now, "You can never do anything right, you can't even kill yourself"

I can see his wife now after he was pulled from the water, nagging him, and hitting him over the head with a ship on a stick and umbrella drink. Must've been all that money he lost in the casino!

A co-worker of mine was on that cruise. He says the guy was drunk and someplace he should not have been. Somewhere forward I assume since he was apparently in sight of the bridge. When told he would have to leave this location he said his S&S card gave him the right to be there. He then threw the card at the crewman and jumped.Since the bridge saw him go over they were able to avoid him . At leaast that's the story I got.
