A crew member reportedly disappeared from the Queen Mary II as the cruise ship was in transit across the Atlantic Ocean.
A person on the cruise ship who wishes to remain anonymous contacted me this morning to report that a crew member went overboard early this morning. The crew member apparently was not seen when he went overboard and the ship does not have an automatic man overboard system. The cruise ship turned around to search for the man who went overboard many hours ago. The captain Kevin Oprey announced the overboard incident to the passengers.
The weather is bad with reports of fog as the search continues. The QM2 is sailing between Southampton and Halifax.
The crew member is reportedly a male chef from Chile.
17 people have gone overboard from cruise ships so far this year.
