A man who fell overboard from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship off the coast of Cozumel, Mexico, was rescued hours later by a passing Disney Cruise Line ship after a passenger heard him calling for help, ABC News reported on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old man, who was not identified by authorities, somehow fell off the Royal Caribbean ship during the early-morning hours of Jan. 8, according to ABC.
Scott Campbell, a passenger on the Disney Cruise Line, told ABC that he was on his balcony with his daughter at about 6:30 a.m. when he heard the man calling for help.
“I’ll never forget the scream, ‘Somebody help me,'” Campbell told the network.
A Disney spokeswoman confirmed that the Disney Magic cruise ship picked up a passenger who had fallen overboard from another cruise ship on Jan. 8 but declined further comment. (Read more about the man rescued by Disney cruise line HERE)
