A number of new sources are reporting that a woman went overboard from the Seabourn Quest this evening. The cruise ship had left Boston and was headed for Bar Harbor, Maine.
The Glouster Times reports that a woman fell off the Seabourn cruise ship 10 miles off the Cape Ann coast tonight. The U.S. Coast Guard dispatched a 47-foot rescue vessel from Gloucester, a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod, and the 270-foot cutter Campbell from Portsmouth, N.H.
The Rockport Harbormasters found the woman’s body about seven miles out around 8:30 p.m. tonight.
WHDH 7 says the women died.
