Woman rescued 10 hours after falling from a cruise ship

The woman fell from the Norwegian Star cruise ship 60 miles off the coast of Croatia

In a brief statement to local broadcaster HRT, the woman, who identified herself as Kay, 46, said she was sitting at the back of the ship's deck when she fell.

A woman on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship got way more exposure to the ocean than she intended, but lived to tell the tale. Hristić described her as young, healthy and sporty, adding: "She is excitedly waiting for her boyfriend to come and take her home".

David Radas, a spokesman at Croatia's Ministry of Maritime Affairs, said surveillance video on the ship ultimately helped rescuers locate Longstaff.

While the circumstances of how she fell are still being investigated, a cruise ship staffer named Daniel Punch said that it looked like Longstaff had jumped into the water after a day spent drinking and arguing with her boyfriend and friends, The Sun UK reported.

The woman was on the Norwegian Star near Croatia when she fell overboard, according to the cruise line. "So these wonderful guys rescued me".

Cavtat ship captain Lovro Oreskovic said: "The British woman was exhausted when we pulled her out of the water. And she said she was singing to not feel cold in the sea overnight". Throughout the dramatic rescue action we have demonstrated to be well-trained and skilled.

They also notified the Croatian navy and coast guard.

"We are very happy that the individual, who is a United Kingdom resident, is now safe and will soon be reunited with friends and family".

Kay was taken to hospital and a spokesperson said, "We can't reveal yet when the patient will be released". However, the incident caused a considerable delay to the schedule and didn't see the ship dock in Italy until 2.30pm.

After searching for the woman and contacting the Croatian coatguard, the Norwegian Star was delayed getting to Venice, its next port, where hundreds of passengers were waiting.
