    FL - David Mossman, 46, Key Largo, 4 March 2016

    Coast Guard Searches for Missing Royal Caribbean Ship Passenger


    Royal Caribbean Ship off The Coast of Key Largo, Florida -
    Coast Guard crews are searching for a 46-year-old man who fell 100 feet overboard from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that was sailing off the coast of Key Largo, Florida.

    The Coast Guard identified the passenger as David Mossman of Texas. The circumstances surrounding the incident are unknown.

    A Royal Caribbean spokesperson said a guest on the Navigator of the Seas ship reported seeing another guest falling overboard from a stateroom balcony just before 11 p.m. Friday.

    Ship crew members and the Coast Guard immediately began a search, the cruise line said.

    "Early Saturday morning, the ship was advised by the Coast Guard that they would be assuming control of the search and the ship resumed its journey to Port Everglades, Florida," Royal Caribbean said in a statement.

    Royal Caribbean did not name the missing guest but did identify him as a 46-year-old man from the U.S.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    More information. I had always thought you couldn't "fall off" a cruise ship, but you could be thrown off or jump off. I would be interested to hear more details.

    Mossman and his mother "got into a big argument" Friday night and Mossman was later spotted talking to a fellow passenger on the balcony. The passenger turned away for a moment, then heard a splash, and Mossman was gone.
