Coast Guard searching for woman who fell off cruise ship

The woman fell over a Carnival cruise ship Friday morning as the ship sailed to Cozumel. The U.S. Coast Guard is assisting in her search.

A woman missing from a Carnival cruise ship fell overboard, Carnival officials said.

Footage from the Carnival Liberty’s cameras showed 33-year-old Samantha Broberg fall overboard around 2 a.m. Friday, according to Carnival officials.

The U.S. Coast Guard is actively searching for Broberg where she went overboard.

In a statement, the Carnival officials said:

Earlier today, a 33-year-old female guest on the cruise ship Carnival Liberty was reported missing by traveling companions. A ship-wide search was conducted along with a review of the ship’s camera footage. Unfortunately, it appears the guest may have gone overboard early this morning.  Authorities were notified including the U.S. Coast Guard which is initiating a search effort in the area where the ship  was located when the individual was last seen. Carnival’s CareTeam is providing support to the guest’s traveling companions and family.  We are keeping our guest and her loved ones in our thoughts during this difficult time. 

The ship departed from Galveston on Thursday on a four-day cruise to Mexico.
