Passenger clings to buoy after falling from cruise ship

By Calvin Palmer

A four-day cruise ended with a splash for one passenger early this morning.

Larry Miller was trying to get a better view of the pilot boat as the Carnival Inspiration was returning to the Port of Tampa, Florida, when he slipped and fell overboard.

The Coast Guard found the 46-year-old clinging to a buoy near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the St Petersburg area.

Miller was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Carnival is investigating the incident.
