Carnival Liberty resumed its course after spending some time searching for the overboard passenger. As of 5 hours ago, the U.S. Coast Guard is still searching the area.


A passenger is overboard a ship which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line and a search is underway.

The U.S. Coast Guard and other vessels are currently searching for 32-year-old Reco Scott who reportedly went overboard Carnival Liberty. The man who is from Decatur, Georgia in the United States apparently went overboard from deck 9 at around 5 AM Friday.

At the time the guest went overboard the Carnival Liberty was 10 miles northwest of the Berry Islands in the Bahamas. The crew onboard urgently launched a search for the man and contacted watch standers at the Seventh Coast Guard District Command Center. At the moment several assets from the U.S. Coast Guard are searching the region along with the Carnival Liberty and two other vessels.

The ship is on a 3-night cruise which departed Port Canaveral, Florida on April 6. The ship was scheduled to call in Nassau, Bahamas today but could be delayed due to the overboard situation. The 110,000 gross ton Carnival Liberty is scheduled to arrive back at its homeport on April 9.

Just three weeks ago a passenger went overboard the Carnival Victory and sadly was never found after a major search operation was launched. A crew member also went overboard a Costa Cruise ship recently and was never found.
