Man, woman fall overboard, rescued

A man and a woman fell overboard[*1] from a Princess Cruise lines ship . . . after about 4 hours in the water, they were rescued:

The captain turned the ship around after friends of the man and woman notified the crew at about 1:30 a.m. CDT that they had gone overboard, Benson said. The ship’s crew used high-powered spotlights and rescue boats in the search. One passenger was rescued by the ship’s boats at 5:30 a.m. and the other at 6 a.m., according to a statement by the cruise line.

Lucky for them they were in relatively warm Gulf of Mexico waters . . .
