Search suspended for woman who went overboard on cruise ship
MIAMI - Authorities have suspended the search for a woman they say intentionally went overboard from a cruise ship that had been chartered for an electronic dance party.
The U.S. Coast Guard and officials from Norwegian Cruise Line say Kaylyn Rose Sommer, 24, of Charleston, South Carolina, went overboard from a deck of the Norwegian Pearl around 7 p.m. Thursday as the ship was about 22 miles off the coast of Cuba.
The cruise line said the cruise was chartered for the Mad Decent Boat Party event, sailing from Miami to Cozumel from Wednesday to Sunday.
Officials say the woman was observed "intentionally going overboard while the ship was sailing the Yucatan Channel."
Authorities said Saturday they had suspended the search after searching more than 600 square nautical miles.
