The Mexican newspaper Milenio has reported that a cruise passenger from Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas out of Fort Lauderdale fell overboard Thursday morning as the cruise ship sailed to Cozumel.

Luckily, the Disney Magic, sailing the same route, then rescued the passenger, identified as U.S. citizen Frank Jade.

According to the newspaper account, the Oasis didn’t realize that the Jade had fallen overboard.

After spotting Jade floating in the ocean, a rescue boat was dispatched by the Magic to save him.

The Magic, which is based out of Port Canaveral, reportedly put in at Punta Langosta where Jade received medical care.
