cruise ship sailing off the coast of Florida has rescued a Carnival
passenger who went overboard during the night.
Disney spokeswoman Rena Langley says the Disney Wonder pulled the passenger out of the water at about 12:45 am ET after responding to a call for help from the Carnival Sensation.
Langley says the Disney ship was about 17 miles south of Port Canaveral, Fla., when it made the rescue, and the ship brought the passenger into the port where he was taken to a hospital by ambulance as a precaution.
"We're incredibly proud of our crew members who were able to locate the individual in distress and bring him safely aboard the Disney Wonder," Langley tells USA TODAY.
