A local television station in Galveston, Texas is reporting that a 39 year old passenger is missing after going overboard from the Carnival Conquest after the cruise ship left Cozumel, Mexico. The incident occurred Friday evening. ABC affiliate Channel 13 Eyewitness News' article states that "according to a statement from Carnival Conquest, a 39-year-old male was seen jumping overboard around 6:30pm Friday while the ship was in the Gulf of Mexico, shortly after departing Cozumel." This statement likely indicates that other passengers observed the passenger go overboard and/or ship personnel observed him jump overboard. The article indicates that the cruise ship returned to the location where the passenger was seen going overboard in order to conduct search and rescue operations. Mexican vessels apparently were also in the search efforts. The Carnival Conquest is returning to Galveston today. This cruise ship has had passengers go overboard in the past. In October 2006, a 48 year old woman apparently committed suicide by jumping from an upper deck. You can read about that incident here. Cruise expert Professor Ross Klein's website mentions another incident in November 2006 when a 42 year old passenger fell/jumped from his cabin and was not found. Professor Klein's website lists 167 incidents (not including this one) where passengers and crew have gone overboard from cruise ships in the last 10 years. Were you on the cruise?
