This is so sad . There are several unanswered questions. It was reported in some stories that she treaded water for 4 minutes (the referenced report says 8 minutes and that she had a "life belt" on) before they got her back into the boat and performed CPR. If she was so ill, how could she have done this in the freezing water and why did she need CPR? Why didn't they secure the rescue boat to the ship? It shouldn't have been that hard-it's done all the time with tenders.

Then, again, maybe her illness would have taken her anyway. Internal bleeding is very serious.

We'll have to see what happens with this case in the future, and hope it doesn't happen again.

Sad indeed. My heart goes out to the family.

I do think that there will be a lawsuit and a settlement.

Take care,
Mike

What a tragedy. There is nothing to but pray for her soul.

I am very impressed by her husband. My only question is why she wasn't airlifted. There could be many valid reasons (weather, etc.) or even possibly unavailability of proper aircraft.

Her husband absolutely deserves to know what killed his wife and whether or not her falling into the ocean exacerbated a situation that ultimately could have been successfully treated which could well be the case. I applaud his decision to apparently refrain from such comment until after the investigation is completed.

The boats were smaller and should have been lashed together. A real big screwup.
