A 15-year-old boy reportedly plunged to his death off a cruise ship that was returning to Miami last Wednesday – prompting a chilling series of “man overboard” announcements.
The teen fell from the MSC Seashore at about 7:30 p.m. in what the company told Fox News was an apparent suicide.
The cruise ship was at the tail end of a five-day journey in the Caribbean.
A passenger on the vessel captured the moment the “man overboard” announcement was made through the ship’s loudspeaker system after three horn blasts.
“Oh my god, oh my god,” the distraught woman says in the footage that was posted to YouTube.
“It’s awful. Can we stop, can we please stop,” she continues.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the teen’s body was recovered.
Miami-Dade police responded to Port Miami on Thursday to investigate. A spokesman told Fox News that “no foul is suspected.”
“All of us at MSC Cruises are heartbroken,” the company said in their statement. “The family remains in our thoughts and prayers.”
