A Carnival Cruise Ship Almost Hit Some Jet Skiers

Carnival Cruise Lines the Magic Carnival Cruise Lines the Magic

As the two women frantically tried to right the jet ski, the wind and current pulled them into the Port channel, directly in the path of an outgoing Carnival Magic cruise ship.

A couple of jet skiers on a spring break were saved by Port Canaveral harbor pilot and a Brevard County Sheriff Marine Unit deputy from a near tragic accident.

While attempting to get back on board, the panicked vacationer accidentally flipped the jet ski over completely.

The entire fracas was captured in a video by a cruise passenger. He rushed to call Sheriff's Deputy Taner Primmer, who was manning the marine unit's patrol boat that day and who quickly made his way to the scene.

Mr Maas said the law could apply to fake news articles if they proved to be slanderous, defamatory or libellous. The individual could personally be fined up to €5m (£4.4m) if the company doesn't meet the standards.

Witnesses said the massive cruise ship came within feet of striking the police boat as well, but Primmer was able to get his craft and the women out of harm's way just in time. A statement from the Canaveral Pilots Association said the cruise ship was being navigated by pilot Captain Doug Brown when he noticed the personal water craft in navigation channel in the vicinity of the jetties. Frantic shouts of "Get in, get in!" can be heard on the video.

"It was really scary to actually watch [the video], I didn't realize how close it was", Penpasuglia said. "This was the first time with people in the water, nearly right in front of you".

The incident occurred Saturday as the Carnival Magic was departing Port Canaveral harbor. In terms of the arrest, the state of Florida grants extended maritime jurisdiction to the Brevard County sheriff's office- and law enforcement agencies at other state ports - to pursue charges in suspected crimes reported out to sea, including global waters.

"This is Skylar Pentasuglia, the second one to be pulled up on the boat by Deputy Tanner Primmer".
