A search is underway for a 23-year-old man who is overboard the Carnival cruise ship. Coast Guard News reports that the man was overboard when the ship was 33 miles northwest of Pinar Del Rio, Cuba. The man apparently went overboard from deck 8 at around 3:00 AM on Wednesday, March 22.

A search by the ship’s crew was immediately launched and the U.S. Coast Guard was notified.
