Woman Survives 38-Hours in Ocean After Falling From Royal Caribbean Cruise

by Eric

Now this is a remarkable story of survival. A Chinese woman from Shanghai apparently leaned too far forward while on board her Royal Caribbean cruise, and fell from the fourth deck into the ocean below. The 31-year-old was on a 5-day trip from Shanghai to South Korea and Japan.

According to reports, the woman was adrift in the ocean for 38 hours, apparently with nothing to hold on to, and was saved by a passing fishing boat. The only reported injuries were blisters from jellyfish stings.
