In the US, the Coast Guard rescued a tourist who fell overboard from a cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico. Details of the story are published by the New York Post.

The sister and brother went on a trip on the Carnival Valor liner, which was supposed to deliver them to the resort island of Cozumel in Mexico. In the evening, relatives looked into the bar, and after some time the man went to the toilet and did not return. The sister informed the crew about the missing passenger only the next day – the ship returned to New Orleans, but did not find anyone along the way.

As it turned out, the unfortunate passenger spent about fifteen hours in the water, clinging to life. The Coast Guard scoured about 200 miles (321 kilometers) of the Atlantic Ocean, but could not find the missing person until they received a message from the cargo ship Crinis, who spotted a man overboard 30 kilometers from Southwest Pass.

Rescuers sent an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to help the man. On-board thermal imaging cameras recorded the hiker waving his arms in near-total darkness, struggling to keep afloat. A member of the Coast Guard descended from the helicopter on a rope and pulled the drowning man out of the water. The man could not explain exactly how he fell off the liner.

Lieutenant Seth Gross of the US Coast Guard called the rescue of the man one of the miracles of Thanksgiving. The military noted that he had not heard of a single person who could survive for so long on the water.

“I think that this case blurs the boundaries of normality and shows that the will to live is what is needed take into account in every search and rescue operation,” Seth Gross commented to CNN reporters.

They also wrote that a ship with a family of four crashed into a whale in the Atlantic Ocean. In order not to drown, people boarded a rubber boat and rowed for a long time with the radio beacon turned on until they were picked up by the oil tanker Golar Seal.
