An 18-year-old man died early Sunday after he jumped from a cruise ship into the Gulf of Mexico.
Officials with Carnival Cruise Lines said the man jumped from aboard the Ecstasy, a 70,000-ton (63,500-metric ton) cruise ship that sailed out of Galveston on Saturday for a five-day round-trip cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.
The passenger was recovered by the crew at about 8 a.m., a half-hour after jumping, and brought on board, where he was pronounced dead. He has not been identified, Vance Gulliksen, a spokesman for the cruise line said.
The Ecstasy, which holds 2,052 passengers, is en route to Cozumel, Gulliksen said, and is expected to arrive Monday morning. It is scheduled to return to Galveston on Thursday.
