Default Another two overboard

Today the news is of a young man who jumped overboard from a Carnival ship to his death on the way to Cozumel. One more bad rap for the cruise ship industry. And on Monday another jumper - at least this one was rescued.

Actually, around here in the news, it wasn't mentioned. I never heard anything on it on the NYC TV stations.

Everything was about the terrorist bombing and the concert for Princess Diana.

Yes, I did read about both of the jumps. From what I read the circumstances surrounding the young man who died are pretty sad. The article said he was only 18 yrs.old. The other gentleman I guess was intoxicated. If this keeps up, I can forsee stricter guidelines for cruisers coming.

I think most of it can be attributed to WAYYY too much alcohol and just putting yourself in a risky situation. You would really almost have to work at it to fall overboard unless you were actually pushed by somebody or just very determined to do it yourself. That couple who were on their honeymoon a couple years ago and the hubby went overboard is a prime example...She wants to blame RCI for everything but it's obvious they were both just completely obliterated drunk...Including her passed out somewhere for awhile not knowing where they hubby was...supposedly.

I'm not sure, but the 18 yr old sounds more like just a plain old suicide. Statistically, people who commit suicide often go somewhere near water or somewhere at a higher elevation (not necessarily to jump but to shoot themselves or whatever)....It could be near a lake, top of a hill or let's face it, a cruise ship would provide both the water and elevation.

Most of us tend to lose our inhibitions while we are on vacation, cruising etc...Remember to watch the people around you for your safety and to protect your property...Also remember if someone is suicidal, they are also HOMICIDAL!
