Default Elderly Couple Overboard??

Ok so my dad called me this morning to tell me that an elderly couple were missing off the Carnival Paradise. Carnival is seriously getting bad rep here because that will make their total to 3 just in 2009 alone. Here's the link..

Honestly I dont understand how people can "fall" overboard unless they are doing something they shouldnt.. What are your thoughts?

I agree about how people just "fall" overboard on cruises. I mean there must be a reason as to why they go over. One suspicious thing is that the couple kept a Do Not Disturb sign on their door so it makes you wonder, did they purposely jump off? Hmmm...

my mom was telling me that they didn't get off in any ports, their cabin door was double locked from inside, and the balcony door was unlocked.

seems like they just wanted to die together, pretty sad story.

Its cute that they wanted to die together, but whats the point of commiting suicide together? It seems like they took toomany meds and went crazy! :o

I want to know what the purpose of having a "Do Not Disturb" sign on their door at all times was for. and why the door double locked.

I dont understand the whole point of this.... thats just CRAZY!

if it was intentional i don't think they would die when they hit the water.

they'd be floating for a few awkward days before dying of dehydration, haha.

alright even if they were drunk......keep in mind that a [/u]couple fell overboard. What are the chances of two people falling overboard at the same time on the same balcony? murder-suicide, maybe, but def not accident.
