A man from Naples, Florida was found dead after the Coast Guard found his body underwater while Oasis of the Seas was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Passengers on board the ship said an announcement was made shortly after and a roll call taken in an attempt to establish who the man was.

Authorities confirmed that a person went overboard by reviewing closed-circuit television footage aboard the ship. Our thoughts go out to the man's family and friends during this very hard time.

The ship was docked in San Juan Bay when the incident occurred, Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad told the Associated Press.

More from Cruise Law News: The ship was chartered for a week long Atlantis cruise from Fort Lauderdale.

No further details about the passenger were released.

Human Rights Watch said riot police had fired tear gas canisters at the heads of some protesters and rubber bullets at their eyes. Anger at the banks - which curbed people's access to savings - boiled over, with protesters smashing bank facades and ATMs.

A representative from the U.S. Coast Guard did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

The man fell from the tenth floor of Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas" ship.

Chloe Wiegand died after she plummeted more than 150 feet, falling through an open window on the Freedom of the Seas vessel while it was docked in July past year.

Oasis of the Seas is now sailing a 7-day Caribbean cruise that departed Miami, Florida on January 19. Royal Caribbean had served the young man over 20 alcoholic drinks in the hours prior to the guest going into the water.

He leaned out of that window for several seconds before lifting Wiegand up to it.
