Disney Cruise Ship Saves Man

Can't make this up. Man fell off a Carnival cruise ship, and gets rescued by a Disney cruise ship! It did happen.

Officials said the man fell off the Sensation at 11:21 p.m. Wednesday, about 28 miles east of Port St. Lucie.

The Coast Guard launched a search helicopter and a 47-foot-long rescue boat from Fort Pierce. An alert also went out to seagoing vessels to assist with the search. The Disney Wonder also responded to the call and spotted the man.

“We were on our way back from the Bahamas and did respond to an emergency call,” said Rena Langley, spokeswoman for Disney Cruise Lines.

He's one lucky fella! Now comes the question on how he fell overboard.
