Go Disney! I noticed he went in for mental assessment. Hope he doesn't try that again!

He may need that mental assessment.

This was our cruise. :yes:

Thankfully for that passenger, Disney knows how to use their rescue equipment. :yes: It was pretty interesting in a scary way, seeing the rescue.

Wow! Your cruise! Something interesting to see, but something you hope you never have to see.

I can't imagine how frightened he must have been he was rescued relatively quickly, but still had to tread water for an hour or so. :eek: If he had hit his head going over and rendered himself unconscious, he'd never had made it. :(

I think I would have been frightened of everything in the ocean, not really the ocean itself.

Yes, it's the panic that will kill you. Seriously. That's what they teach you in diving school. In the dark, flailing about... I don't know if I could have done as well. I'd like to think so, with the training I've had, but sheesh... maybe being under the influence of alcohol helped in a back handed sort of way...

OMG Tink, that is really weird isn't it? Glad your cruise ship was able to assist him.

I have always thought it very comforting to see the DCL lifeboats deployed at most of the ports of call to make sure they are operating ok and that the crew are kept up to speed with safety issues. :thumbsup:

Absolutely! Disney's Crew is some of the very best we've ever cruised with, from service to friendliness to knowledge about the ocean and the location you really can't beat that team!

I would have been terrified of JUMPING from so high up to begin with!!

Reports reflect that he was feeling no pain . That he was drunk . I bet he straightened up real fast once he hit the water .
Kudos to Disney !!! Well Done !!!
