Default Someone fell off a cruise ship????

Someone asked me if I heard about someone falling off of a cruise ship a couple of weeks ago. She heard the person died. My husband said no, they lived, & it was a female crew member. I obviously missed this if it was in the news. Anyone know what really happened?

Default Crew Member Overboard

It was a crew member on Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Norway. The 24-year old (female, from Romania) employee some how fell off the ship enroute from Miami to St. Maarten. Once aware she was missing, Norway’s captain, in conjunction with the help of the U.S. Coast Guard, located the crew member -- just north of the Turks and Caicos Islands. She had treaded water for some 12 hours during the night.

Instead of being "self-righteous" in some posts.....why don't we just be thankful she is okay. I think the important thing is that she is okay....not why she fell.
