The Twittersphere has exploded this evening with reports that a passenger on the Mad Decent Boat Party cruising festival has fallen overboard. Reports began streaming in from attendees that this person actually jumped from the ship, but that has not been confirmed. However, there has been confirmation of “man overboard” and the ship is executing rescue maneuvers including a turn around and deployment of lifeboats.

On top of this, reports indicate that the festival onboard has come to a stop and passengers are being told to report to their staterooms for a headcount. We join the rest of the world in hoping for the best possible outcome in this situation. Stay tuned for further updates. 

UPDATE: 7:20PM  Thankfully the person has been found! Party on and let’s all be thankful that this story had a happy ending.
