Coast Guard Suspends Search for Overboard Cruise Ship Passenger

The Coast Guard suspended its search 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.

The Coast Guard says in a release that it suspended its search around 8 p.m. Saturday after searching 590 square miles.
