Man Dies After Jumping From Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship in Puerto Rico

A cruise passenger has died after jumping from Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas while the cruise ship was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico last night.

The U.S. Coast Guard said that the man jumped from the 10th deck on Oasis of the Seas.  They were contacted by the San Juan Police with the report of a person overboard.

The Coast Guard set up a safety zone around the ship and launched dive teams to look for the body. Although the divers quickly found the body of the 48 year old man from Naples, Florida, he did not survive the jump.
