    I'm sure she was tossed but this is the official story for now.

    The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a cruise ship passenger who may have gone overboard in the Gulf of Mexico Friday.

    The Coast Guard said in a statement that its district command center in New Orleans was contacted by the master of the cruise ship Carnival Liberty. The ship reported that surveillance video showed a woman falling overboard at about 2 a.m. Friday.

    “Earlier today, a 33-year-old female guest on the cruise ship Carnival Liberty was reported missing by traveling companions. A ship-wide search was conducted along with a review of the ship’s camera footage,” the cruise line said in a statement, according to KVUE-TV.

    “Unfortunately, it appears the guest may have gone overboard early this morning. Authorities were notified including the U.S. Coast Guard which is initiating a search effort in the area where the ship was located when the individual was last seen. Carnival’s CareTeam is providing support to the guest’s traveling companions and family. We are keeping our guest and her loved ones in our thoughts during this difficult time.”


    Samantha Broberg, 33, was found to be missing. A Coast Guard aircraft was dispatched from Mobile, Alabama, to search the area about 200 miles southeast of Galveston.

    The ship had left Galveston for Cozumel, Mexico about 10 hours earlier.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    She had 4 kids, I would think it was a possible suicide.

    Before cameras, this used to be the best way to get rid of someone.

    I think if she were tossed, the video would show that no?

    They don't say what is on the video. I don't get why she'd be alone at 2am

    The cruise lines won't say it on record, but I've heard they figure more than 90% of cases like this are a drunk person making an impaired judgement bad choice.

    "Look at me hop up and sit on this rail backwards and lean way back, waaay, waaay ba....oops!"

    She'll be fine.
    I'm sure that some friendly dolphins swam her back to shore.

    I figure it's only a matter of time for most cruise ships that rails on the decks and the ocean facing cabins are raised so high that falling or being thrown will not be possible.
