UK Woman 'sang to Stay Awake' after Falling off Cruise Ship

PULA, Croatia (AP) — The rescuers of a British woman who fell from a cruise ship and spent 10 hours in the Adriatic Sea at night say it's a miracle that she's alive.

The captain of the Croatian rescue ship that found Kay Longstaff, 46, floating some 95 kilometers (60 miles) off Croatia's coast says "luckily for her we saw her immediately because she raised and waved her hands when she saw us."

Lovro Oreskovic tells the Glas Istre portal on Monday that Longstaff told the crew that she practices yoga and that she sang while floating to stay awake.

She says she fell from the back of the Norwegian Star cruise ship shortly before midnight Saturday. Some 10 hours later, she was rescued and taken to a hospital in the town of Pula.
