There is a report of a "man overboard" this afternoon from the Carnival Glory cruise ship.
A reader from Honduras listening to channel 16 heard the report and said that the Honduran Navy and locals were searching for a person overboard at certain coordinates in Honduran waters.
A person also notified me on my Facebook page.
Richard Elston has a friend on board the Glory and tells me that a passenger went overboard from the cruise ship.
This is the third person overboard from a cruise ship in four days. A crew member from Chile went overboard from the Queen Mary 2 over the weekend. A 23 year old passenger went overboard from the MSC Magnifica this morning.
This is the 19th person going overboard so far this year.

Update: I received a message from a reader who indicated that her aunt had gone overboard. She was reportedly notified by the Honduran ambassador that her aunt’s body was located.
