Passenger Accident Independence of the Seas.jpgJust 5 days after Canadian passenger Tien Phuoc Nguyen reportedly fell off the Adventure of the Seas, there are news reports of a second Canadian tourist has fallen off a Royal Caribbean Cruise ship.

Cayman Islands police have issued a statement that they suspect a 65-year-old Canadian man may have fallen off the Independence of the Seas cruise ship. The missing passenger's wife told investigators that the couple went to bed around 1 a.m. but when she woke up 6 hours later, the man vanished. The 15 deck, 1,112 foot long Independence of the Seas was searched and the on board CCTV video was reviewed. Unfortunately, it could not be determined what happened to the passenger and the investigation continues. Police suspect that the accident happened while the ship was approaching Grand Cayman. The Cayman Port Authority has requested all marine traffic be on the lookout for the missing passenger. The Independence of the Seas was on a 6 night voyage leaving from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
