This video has been making the rounds on Facebook. It was reportedly taken aboard the Carnival Liberty, a cruise ship that currently sails out of Galveston. However, we weren’t able to verify when or where it was taken.
As you can see below, it shows a young man (teen?) climbing over the rail of the cruise ship while it’s underway. Pretty dangerous stuff. Thankfully, nothing bad happens as he is over the rail and he makes it back ok.
It goes without saying that this is a pretty dangerous thing to do. People fall overboard on a cruise ship quite often… and that’s when they aren’t even climbing over the rail. Considering ships in the open water can move at 20-25 miles per hour, it only takes about three minutes before someone who falls overboard is already a mile away from the ship.
Don’t climb over the rail on a cruise ship.
