Just how do a man & a woman fall from a cruise ship?

Oh, I can only imagine... From the AP:
A man and woman fell overboard from a cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico early Sunday, but both were rescued after a four-hour search and appeared to be in good condition, a cruise line spokeswoman said.

The 22-year-old man and 20-year-old woman fell 50 to 60 feet from a cabin balcony, said Julie Benson, spokeswoman for Princess Cruises.
The cruise line is saying they don't know how they fell... I just want to know what they were doing that friends would have been watching...

Nonetheless, they ought to thank their guardian angels that they were found in the open ocean; they were 150 miles from shore when they decided to go for a swim.


  1. THAT's the problem with the youth of today . . Now when I was a kid, you never saw US tumbling off the side of a cruise ship. No sir. Mark my words, kids of today are going to hell on a bobsled (or a cruise ship).

  2. Yeah, in our day, a bed would have been sufficient.

  3. OR even the bed of a pick-up truck!!
