Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

When a passenger on a Royal Caribbean cruise recently fell overboard it wasn’t his own cruise ship that rescued him. The crew of The Disney Magic that just happened to be passing by actually fished him out of the water.

The 22-year-old man was a passenger on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas when, due to unknown reasons; he ended up in the water. That’s when passengers aboard the Disney Magic ship saw him and alerted the ship’s crew.

The crew lowered a lifeboat boat into the ocean and sailed out to rescue the man. He was immediately taken to shore for treatment.
