Boats search for man who fell off Queen Mary 2


ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. ? A search is under way for a passenger of the luxury liner Queen Mary 2 who fell overboard as the ship was crossing Newfoundland's Grand Banks on its way to New York.

A coast guard spokesperson said the man fell overboard yesterday and fishing boats were called in to help with the search.

Avoid leaning over the railings, Greg. Maybe dry land is better...

Maybe he didn't like royalty.

Maybe he was reinacting "I'm the king of the world" scene from Titanic and leaned a little too far...

Maybe he went for a morning walk and ended up on a raised deck where some kids were horsing around this big bucket of water. It is possible the bucket was spilled, he went to pick it up and slipped out of the ship...while holding a nice and cold Bloody Mary...
