Disney to the Rescue

23:00 January 16, 2015

For one man, the Disney Magic cruise ship preformed the greatest magic trick of all time.

On January 8th a 22 year-old passenger fell off Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas cruise ship near Cozumel, Mexico. Hours later, he was rescued by the Disney Magic ship after ship passengers heard a cry for help coming from the choppy waters. Rescuers told ABC News the passenger was extremely lucky.  If he were just a little further away his screams would not have been heard. 

The passenger was found in surprisingly good health and spirits. He even waved to other passengers on the Disney Magic when he left the boat to seek medical attention in Cozumel.

Watch the daring rescue here.
