A Princess cruise ship rescued two people earlier today after their plane went down in the Atlantic Ocean.
Passengers onboard Regal Princess posted photos and videos of the rescue. The cruise ship worked with the U.S. Coast Guard to rescue the two and bring them onboard.
Captain Stringer on Regal Princess told passengers that the two they rescued are doing well and that the ship is back on its original course.
Passenger Sean Baldwin posted a few photos on Twitter of the rescue.
