A woman went overboard from the Carnival Cruise ship in Mexico, leaving behind her husband and their two children. The man is now left to pick up the pieces with his kids while he tries to find out what happened.
The “carnival cruise line news” is a woman who went overboard from the Carnival Cruise Line ship. The woman was found dead, and it is unknown how she died. The woman fell off of the boat in the Atlantic Ocean near St. Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands on April 24th at approximately 6:20 p.m., according to a witness report by an unnamed person.
During a Carnival Miracle cruise early Saturday morning, a lady in her twenties slipped overboard.
The ship was scheduled to return to her homeport on Sunday morning after a three-night voyage from Long Beach, California to Ensenada.
While the ship was travelling 35 miles off the coast of Mexico, security video showed a lady jumping overboard from deck five.
A San Diego-based MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and the search and rescue cutter Forrest Rednour were deployed to help in the search for the lady, the US Coast Guard said on Saturday afternoon. The agency was collaborating with the Mexican Navy to track down the passenger.
The USCG and allied agencies will continue the search until Saturday night, according to a subsequent report.

“The ship came to a full halt about 3:30 a.m. and they released a lifeboat a few seconds later,” a visitor aboard the cruise who asked to remain anonymous told Cruise Radio.

“We alerted Carnival Miracle passengers this morning of an overboard incident involving one of our guests from the balcony of her cabin,” read a statement from Carnival Cruise Line.
“After aiding the US Coast Guard with a search, the ship has been freed and is continuing to Ensenada, where it will subsequently return to Long Beach on Sunday morning as planned,” they said. Our hearts go out to the visitor and her family, and our Care Team is here to help.”

Following the industry-wide closure, Miracle was the first Carnival cruise ship to resume service on the west coast.
