Coast Guard still searching for cruise ship crewman lost overboard

A crew member who had fallen overboard from a Norwegian Cruise Line ship was rescued by a Carnival Cruise Line ship over the weekend.

The unidentified 33-year-old went overboard as the Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Getaway sailed back to Miami on Saturday, the cruise line said. He was found bobbing in the water by another ship around 1:00 p.m. Sunday, the Miami Herald reported. Carnival said a member of its crew spotted the man in the water and the ship turned around, lowered a life boat and rescued the overboard employee. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales.

A spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Line - the owners of Norwegian Getaway - described the man's survival as "miraculous". "Kudos to the Carnival Glory team for this fantastic effort to rescue a fellow seafarer", the spokesperson said.

Norwegian said in a statement that the Miami-based cruise line is "extremely thankful" to Carnival Cruise Line, also based in Miami.

Norwegian Getaway is now sailing a seven night cruise to the Western Caribbean and due to return to Miami on Sunday. A statement from the U.S. Coast Guard said he was in stable condition. A Coast Guard cutter joined the search at 2 a.m. Sunday.

The Carnival ship had been on its way to Cozumel, Mexico, at the time.
