(NEW YORK) — The United States Coast Guard is searching for a missing man after he went overboard a Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship early this morning.
The incident happened on the Oasis of the Seas ship while it was 80 nautical miles off the coast of the Bahamas, USCG said.
The Oasis of the Seas told USCG a 35-year-old man jumped from the seventh deck of the ship onto a life raft below and then fell into the water.
USCG has deployed one helicopter from the Bahamas and a plane from Clearwater, Florida to assist in the search.
The Oasis of the Seas currently has two boats out searching.
