Man Overboad On Cruise Ship

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) The U.S. Coast guard was searching the Caribbean northeast of the Bahamas Friday for a 35-year-old Brazilian man who the Royal Caribbean cruise line said jumped from the Oasis of the Seas during the night.

Royal Caribbean said the man, who was not identified, was spotted by the ship’s crew “intentionally going over the side of the ship” about 17 miles east of the Turks and Caicos islands. It did not elaborate.

The Coast Guard said it was using two helicopters to scour the ocean about 90 miles northeast of Mayaguana, Bahamas. The cruise ship also launched two small boats to help with the search.
