A summer trip could’ve ended badly for a British woman when she fell off of a cruise ship. The unnamed 46-year-old was a passenger on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Star ship which was sailing off the coast of Croatia when she fell Saturday night.
The woman says she fell off the back and was “very lucky to be alive.” She was rescued by the coast guard after spending 10 hours in the Adriatic Sea, according to officials. She was taken to the hospital to be checked out and is in stable condition, according to Norwegian Cruise Line.
Captain of the rescue vessel says the woman was found “exhausted,” adding, “We were extremely happy for saving a human life.”
