Cruise Line Says Missing Passenger Jumped Overboard

SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) — A cruise line says a passenger was seen jumping overboard as the ship headed toward San Diego.

Celebrity Cruises said Wednesday the Celebrity Millennium’s closed-circuit video shows the woman climbed over a railing Monday night and let go.

KNX 1070’s Tom Peopelle reports.

The ship staff learned she was missing when she failed to disembark in San Diego on Tuesday and couldn’t be found onboard. Her name has not been released.

The company said the ship’s GPS satellite marked the location where the guest went overboard. The Coast Guard has called off the search.

    And why wasn’t this brought out earlier?? Who, if anyone, was supposed to be monitoring that camera? If no one, what good is the camera in the first place?

    Cruise ship cameras are not generally monitored. They are used for investigative purposes when something goes wrong, rather than to intervene in real time.
