Just heard on the news that a man is missing off a carnival ship out of Miami. Missed the name of the ship. Has been missing since Tuesday.
The rails are high enough that I just dont see anyone falling off accidently, unless playing around, or drunk.
They have called off the search. It was north east of Cozumel.
You are right about the railings...There is ALMOST no way to accidentally fall overboard..Goofing around or wanting to jump are about the only way to go overboard....So sorry it has to happen to anyone...Safe cruising to everyone....
His family will be in my prayers. You just can't fall overboard. You can jump, you can do something you shouldn't do and fall, but unless you're standing or sitting on the railing, you can't just fall over the railing.
I have to admit a couple of years ago I almost went over the railing. It would not have been into the water. It would have been onto the bow of the ship while they were bringing in mooring ropes. I am fascinated by the crew when they are coming into port and leaving. I was leaning over the railing taking pictures when I was accidentally pushed from behind by a group of teenage boys. They reacted quickly and grabbed me before I could make any headlines. The only casualty was my rum and coke that was precariously perched on the railing.
