Oasis of the seas did not realize their passenger had fallen overboard on thursday
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.
Jade is in a stable condition and was not seriously injuried.
The Oasis of the Seas is the second largest cruise ship in the world at 242,999 tons and 1,186 feet long. The ship is currently on a 7-night western Caribbean cruise and will be back at its homeport in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday.
The Disney Magic is also on a western Caribbean cruise and will be back in Port Canaveral on Sunday.
