Whenever I see crew members anywhere near the water, they are always wearing life jackets. Assuming he fell while performing a work duty, what might he have been doing that did not require him to wear a life jacket?

Not saying if he fell or jumped,but a fellow crewmate on the SR just posted something on FB,that indicated he didnt just fall......might be intentional..

So sad and prayers for his family.

My parents are on that ship and they were told that the crew member jumped off deck 11. My father said the captain sounded the alarm at 4 a.m. and spent 8 hours looking for him but sadly with no luck.

Even IF they survive the fall/or/jump, I can't even imagine going overboard.

I feel so sad for his family.

I sure hope the news article contains a misprint...it says the water temperature was "a bearable 20 degrees"!!!!!!

So sorry when things like this happen...for the soul who felt the need to end their life, for their families and friends, and even for the cruisers on that particular voyage...what a sad memory to bring home from an otherwise happy cruise experience.

Probably meant 20 degrees celcius, works out to 68 degrees fahrenheit. I hope they offered grief counseling for the staff.

20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

I also have a friend on board the ship and he flatly states that it was intentional.

Oh, that is just so so sad. if intentional u wonder how someone get's to that point and feels that this is their only avenue and they can't talk it through..

My thoughts are with the family, relatives and friends who must be so devastated. RIP..
