There is no way to fall overboard unless the person is drunk, plus there is a physical effort to go over the ship railing. The behavior of passenger is embarrassing.

Mr. Hole: The reference to "fall" comes from the newspaper in the U.K. We are not going to report anything else like a push, or a jump, or whatever unless it is reported as such. There is no reference to anyone being drunk and the cruise ship has not even been identified as such. Where in Chile are you? What is your profession? Jim Walker

Heard of a suicide last week on Black Watch, but that was enroute to Montevideo.
