Bob Horn Cruise Ship DeathThe press in the U.K. is reporting that a former newspaper reporter from Sunderland, England drown "after falling overboard from a cruise ship in South America."

Mr. Horn previously worked for the Sunderland Echo newspaper. 

The cruise ship has not been identified.

    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.

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