Default Woman overboard again!

Another one goes over the rail....


Woman may have jumped during cruise
Body thought to be that of the missing passenger is found off coast of Mexico. FBI boarded ship upon its return to Port of L.A.
By Donna Littlejohn
DAILY BREEZE

An eight-day cruise along the Mexican Riviera took a grim turn this week when a passenger reportedly jumped overboard from the back of the 2,400-passenger Norwegian Star as it made its way to the Port of Los Angeles.

A televised news report that the body of a woman -- presumed to be the missing passenger -- was found later off the coast of Mexico was not confirmed Friday by Ken Smith of the FBI's Los Angeles office.



"It's still a pending investigation of a missing person aboard a cruise ship," he said.

When asked whether there was any evidence of foul play, he said, "I can't confirm that."

FBI officials Friday would not even confirm the gender or in any other way identify the missing passenger.

The 15-deck ship, which left the Port of Los Angeles on Oct. 5, returned to port in San Pedro as scheduled Friday and FBI agents boarded the vessel to interview passengers.

The woman's traveling companion reported that she was missing at about 7 p.m. Wednesday as the ship sailed in Mexican waters passing by Cabo San Lucas on its way home, according to a statement released by Norwegian Cruise Line.

The Norwegian Star notified the Coast Guard and FBI and turned around, spending several hours that evening in a search along with the Mexican Navy. Passengers were told what had happened at the time, said Norwegian Cruise Line spokeswoman Susan Robison.

The ship arrived back in Los Angeles on Friday, but it was delayed by a few hours due to the search.

Stops on the cruise included Acapulco, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.

By late afternoon Friday, the FBI had concluded its interviews and new passengers were boarding for the ship's next eight-day cruise, scheduled to leave for Mexico that evening.

It is always terrible to hear about people overboard. I'm afraid that in years to come, the cruise lines will end up putting up plexi-glass around the decks except for a limited area where people can be supervisedor have small spaces to allow the breeze to come through.

If the media would stop reporting this stuff in the news, there probably won't be such a sudden rash of suicides/deaths.

I've heard more about this stuff in the last year than in the last 20 years.

and if you check this has been happening for years: a couple per year plus others disappearing altogether etc. Should we thank or blast Fox news, Gretta, etc? Actually we are watchers of FOX, but get pretty upset when they can't wait to tackle these types of stories. I heard Bill O refer to the boat instead of the ship and the room, not the cabin. I know, I am being really picky but it is obvious he have no clue. That was back in the George Smith days. NMnita
