September 3, 2009 – The Disney Wonder Rescues a Man Overboard
“guess that disney magic is real.”
On September 3, 2009, the Disney Wonder rescued a man from the Atlantic Ocean near Florida at around 12:45 am. The 34-year-old man had jumped overboard from a Carnival Cruise Line ship after allegedly arguing with a woman, and the nearby Disney Wonder diverted its course to rescue him. A Disney rescue boat was then sent to retrieve the man, who had been treading water for about an hour, and brought him back to the Disney Wonder. The cruise ship brought him back to Port Canaveral, where he was taken to a hospital for a physical and mental evaluation.
