A British woman, who fell overboard from a cruise ship, has been rescued after spending ten hours treading water through the night.


Forty-six-year-old, Kay Longstaff, fell overboard whilst vacationing on the Norwegian Star off the coast of Croatia. She spent close to ten hours overnight in the Adriatic Sea before the Croatian Coast Guard rescued her.

“I fell of the back of the Norwegian star,” Longstaff told Croatian news outlet HRT. “I was in the water for 10 hours, so these wonderful guys rescued me. I’m very lucky to be alive.”


According to British tabloid The Sun, Longstaff told one rescuer it helped that she was fit from doing yoga and sang to herself through the night to stop feeling cold.

Investigators are trying to determine how Longstaff fell from the ship.

A spokesperson for Norwegian, issued a statement saying, “In the morning of August 19, a guest went overboard as Norwegian Star made her way to Venice. The coast guard was notified and a search and rescue operation ensued. We are pleased to advise that the guest was found alive, is currently in stable condition, and has been taken ashore in Croatia for further treatment.
