a 32-year-old woman jumped off a Carnival Valor ship

A Carnival cruise ship departed Mexico at 3.27 p.m. on Tuesday and was scheduled to arrive in New Orleans on Thursday. On Wednesday‚ a 32-year-old woman jumped off the ship while it was off the coast of Louisiana. She was not identified‚ but authorities believe foul play may have been involved. The cruise ship's command began Search and rescue procedures immediately‚ then returned to the area of the incident. The U.S. Coast Guard was notified and a CARE team on board the ship was assigned to assist her husband and other family members. The incident occurred when the 32-year-old woman allegedly jumped from the cruise ship‚ but the cause of her death has yet to be determined. The cruise ship's captain and security staff have not said how the woman jumped off the boat‚ but fellow passengers say she was restrained by security guards after she got into a fight inside the hot tub area. The woman was upset when she was taken into custody and tried to assault a security officer before falling into the water. The security footage of the incident revealed that the 32-year-old woman was handcuffed when she jumped. She screamed her name‚ Alicia‚ repeatedly‚ before leaping into the Gulf of Mexico. Immediately following the incident‚ the security guards threw life preserver tubes to the woman. Afterwards‚ they tossed flares into the water to mark her position. Following the incident‚ some passengers have threatened to sue the cruise line. Rhonda Turner was on board with her husband and two young sons when she reportedly saw the woman's head bobbing in the water. The mother of two is seeking financial compensation and a cruise credit to take with her children. This is an extremely tragic event for Rhonda Turner and her family. The Coast Guard suspended the Search for the missing woman after a nearly 2‚500 square-mile-area Search failed to locate her. The cruise ship‚ Carnival Valor‚ was docked in New Orleans at the time of the incident. The 32-year-old woman is an African-American and was believed to have leaped with her hands bound. She was last seen at about two o'clock on the afternoon of Feb. 16. The incident occurred after a heated hot tub incident occurred on the ship. A woman was handcuffed before she jumped and her husband was searching for her. Authorities have not released her name or the identity of the woman. Although she was wearing a life jacket and a body bag‚ the cruise ship was over 150 miles from the coast of South Pass‚ Louisiana when the incident occurred. The cruise ship‚ the Carnival Valor‚ was returning from a five-day Mexican cruise when the incident took place. The vessel returned to New Orleans on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. After the incident‚ Carnival Cruise released a statement describing the situation. A spokesperson for the cruise line denied any involvement in the incident. Nevertheless‚ the cruise line's CARE team and the company's guests are continuing to support the victims.
