The Coast Guard is searching for a 39-year-old man who went overboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship off the Bahamas.

The incident happened early Saturday morning, about 60 miles north of Nassau.

The man was not immediately identified, but fellow passengers saw him go overboard.

The ship was headed to Nassau, its first port of call on a three-day voyage. Several cruise ships in the area were assisting Coast Guard crews in the search.
