(Newser) – A vacation nightmare: A man on Friday went overboard from a cruise ship about 35 miles off the Florida Keys. The US Coast Guard was searching for the unidentified 26-year-old who plummeted from the Carnival Victory, using a plane, helicopter, and cutter, per CNN. "Sadly, all the facts surrounding this unfortunate incident indicate it was an intentional act," says a Carnival rep, per NBC. The cruise ship was heading back to Miami after a four-day cruise when the incident occurred. (This cruising couple found a camera in their cabin.)
