Usually, when something like this happens it doesn't end up good but for a change, we have a miraculous rescue from the Carnival cruise ship.

A 33-year-old crew member aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's Getaway was seen going overboard 28 miles northwest of Pinar del Rio on Cuba's western side, the Coast Guard said.

"The Jayhawk crew located the sailing vessel, hoisted Petersen and transported him to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos with no reported injuries".

A man who went overboard on the cruise ship Norwegian Getaway was rescued almost 24 hours later by another cruise ship.

The large cruise ship is staffed with more than 1,500 crew members and can accommodate almost 4,000 guests.

A missing crewmember from the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship has been found.

"This is nothing short of miraculous", said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. The unidentified crewmember was found Sunday by the Carnival Glory and is in stable condition. "Kudos to the Carnival Glory team". It's not clear if that was the time the crew member went overboard, or just the time the coast guard was notified.

The man was spotted going overboard at 3:10 Saturday.

The incident remains under investigation.

"We are so happy to know that the individual is safe and will soon be reunited with friends and family.", the spokesperson told The Miami Herald.
