Carnival Rescues Crew Member Who Had Fallen From NCL Ship

A CRUISE ship worker who went overboard and reportedly had to tread water for 22 hours is in a stable condition, a day after being rescued by another passing cruise ship.

But on Sunday morning, the unidentified crew member was spotted in the ocean by a cabin steward on board the Glory as it sailed by Cuba.

Carnival Glory is now on a seven night cruise to the Western Caribbean from Miami.

The crew member is being treated on board the Carnival ship, which is now heading to Cozumel, Mexico.

The man went overboard from the Norwegian Getaway and had been drifting since at least Saturday.

A spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Line - the owners of Norwegian Getaway - described the man's survival as "miraculous".

A lifeboat was lowered to rescue him and he was given medical treatment on board.

Carnival Glory was actually at the start of a 7-night western Caribbean cruise which is the same as the Norwegian Getaway, the vessel which the crew member was overboard from.

"We're still searching", Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Lally said Sunday just before 8 a.m.

"We slowed down, turned the ship around and maneuvered the Carnival Glory near where the person was in the water", said Capt. Pero Grubješić of the Glory.

The U.S. Coast Guard posted the following tweet after the successful rescue operation.
