COZUMEL, Mexico -- A passenger has plunged off an Atlantis "gay cruise" off the coast of Mexico today, KABC News is reporting.
The man is presumed to have drowned, since the Mexican Navy and Coast Guard called off its search after several hours without finding a body.
The Royal Caribbean cruise charter Allure of the Seas issued a statement Friday saying that a witness saw another passenger go overboard about 7 am and that security footage captured the moment. The company said a 30-year-old man from Ireland went over the balcony railing of his stateroom.
The Allure of the Seas continued its cruise several hours later, headed for its next stop off Cozumel, Mexico.
