Carnival Cruise Passenger Overboard
According to Carnival Cruise Line's "Brand Ambassador" John Heald, "Earlier this morning, a 21-year-old male guest was reported missing on Carnival Glory and a review of camera footage confirmed a man overboard. The ship is currently en route to the location where it was at the time the individual was last seen on the camera footage and will commence search and rescue operations upon arrival. Authorities have been notified including U.S. Coast Guard which is launching a search and rescue operation as well. The ship is presently near the Bahamas.
The company's CareTeam is providing support to the guest's traveling companions. We extend our heartfelt sympathy and concern for the family and loved ones of our missing guest."
