Overboard and Lived to Tell about It

A 46-year-old British woman went overboard from Norwegian Star in the early morning hours (apparently just after midnight) of Sunday morning (August 19) as the ship was sailing from Dubrovnik to Venice.

The ship was approximately 60 miles off the Croatian coast at the time, but the water was about 70 degrees. The woman managed to tread water for about ten hours until she was spotted by a Croatian Coast Guard vessel and taken aboard about 9:40am, a little more than a half mile (1.3 km) from where the ship calculated (from video) she must have gone overboard.

The complete story appeared in the August 20 edition of Cruise News Daily.
