Disney cruise ship stages dramatic rescue

A passenger who went overboard on a cruise ship was rescued by a passing Disney cruise liner.

The 22-year-old who fell off the Royal Caribbean ship Oasis of the Seas was only spotted in the water by the eagle-eyed passengers and crew of the Disney Magic vessel as it passed by later in the day.

The incident happened on Thursday morning as the Magic was approaching Cozumel off the coast of Mexico.

It is not yet known how the passenger came to be in the water.
