Body Of Missing Atlantis Cruise Passenger Recovered From Water After Falling Overboard In San Juan

The U.S. Coast Guard has recovered the body of a person who reportedly fell overboard from a cruise ship just off Puerto Rico’s north shore, reports CBS News’ David Begnaud.

Begnaud reported that the body of a white male was recovered by divers Wednesday evening after falling from the 10th story deck of Royal Carribean’s Oasis of the Seas’ which was docked in San Juan at the time.

“The ship is hosting an Atlantis cruise which caters to the LGBTQ+ community,” Begnaud added.

The ship was chartered for a week long Atlantis cruise that set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Eight years ago, a passenger went overboard from the Allure of the Seas during an Atlantis cruise.

“Roll call underway aboard Royal Carribean’s Oasis of the Seas that’s docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to identify the passenger who fell from the 10th floor deck,” Begnaud added.
