Man Survives 8 Hours in Water After Fall From Cruise Ship


A man who reportedly jumped from a cruise ship off Florida's coast early Friday was rescued eight hours later by the Coast Guard.

The 24-year-old man ran through a Carnival Cruise Lines ship cabin window and fell into the water off Fort Lauderdale, a witness told Coast Guard Petty Officer Dana Warr. It was unclear whether the window was open at the time.

The witness said the man was intoxicated, Warr said.

A word to the wise. I'm just sayin'...
