Monday, 20 August 2018 07:51 AM

A British cruise passenger was rescued off Croatia's coast on Sunday after falling overboard and spending 10 hours in the Adriatic Sea at night, that country's coast guard reported.

The woman, identified only as Kay from England was taken to a hospital in the town of Pula and is believed to be out of danger.

The woman fell from the Norwegian Star cruise ship, about 60 miles off Croatia's coast shortly before midnight Saturday.

A Croatian rescue ship was scrambled and found her swimming Sunday morning not far from where she was believed to have fallen.

The ship's captain, Lovro Oreskovic, said that she was exhausted.

He said that "we were extremely happy for saving a human life."

The circumstances of the incident are being investigated and the British Embassy in Croatia was informed.
