  • Man falls overboard from cruise ship off B.C. coast

Although the Coast Guard said early in the search the man had "jumped" off the cruise ship, they updated that post to say they "have no indication of why the individual went overboard".

The man was reported to have gone overboard off the balcony of his stateroom at around 4:15 a.m. into US waters just northwest of the Olympic Peninsula.

The United States Coast Guard says a helicopter rescue crew found the man unresponsive in the water near the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Tuesday afternoon.

Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound Command Center watchstanders received communication from the cruise ship Seven Seas Mariner reporting a 73-year-old male had gone overboard at approximately 4:30 a.m. this morning.

The ship's captain later said a ship video showed a passenger apparently jumping from the eighth-deck balcony at 4:15 a.m.

At the time the man went overboard, the vessel was in US waters, just north of Cape Flattery, at the northwestern tip of Washington state's Olympic Peninsula.

The ship, the Seven Seas Mariner, is on its way back to Vancouver from Alaska and is scheduled to stop in Victoria later Tuesday.
