The US coast guard received reports of the overboard employee on Saturday afternoon and searched for him throughout the night.

In a video posted on Carnival's website, the ship's Captain Pero Grubjesic said his ship was "enroute from Miami to Cozumel when several crew members and guests spotted a person floating in the water about 20 miles north of Cuba". The Miami-based cruise line says it's "extremely grateful" to the crew of the Carnival Glory for finding the crew member.

"Kudos to the Carnival Glory team for this awesome effort to rescue a fellow seafarer", Duffy said.

"We're still searching", Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Lally said Sunday just before 8 a.m.

We're sure there's a great survival story here and at some point it will come out. The man was found by another vessel in a discovery that's being described as "nothing short of miraculous". A Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crew was diverted to conduct search patterns at 3:30 p.m. approximately 28 miles northwest of Pinar del Rio, Cuba.

Fast forward 12 years and, although this wasn't quite as straightforward, England have now put an end to an unwanted record. England's Jordan Pickford made a massive save on Carlos Bacca and Mateus Uribe was denied by the crossbar in the shootout.

A crewmember on a Norwegian Cruise Line has been found 22 hours after going overboard while sailing near Cuba.

The Coast Guard has stated that the yet to be named crew member is in a stable condition but an investigation into what happened is ongoing.

Glory is on a seven-day Western Caribbean cruise.

"Our condolences to the crew member's family", said Lowinger.

The crew member was seen falling overboard from the Norwegian Cruise Line Ship (pictured) on Saturday afternoon. The bridge officers were immediately alerted and launched a lifeboat to pick up the man.
