The body of a 41-year-old Taiwanese passenger has been recovered from the ocean after the woman fell from the 11th deck of a Princess Cruises ship during a voyage to Okinawa, reports said on Friday, August 9.
It wasn't immediately known whether the accident was related to Typhoon Lekima, that was barreling through the ocean between Japan and Taiwan at the time.
The woman was discovered missing at 6:00 a.m. Japanese time on Friday, triggering a full-scale search that turned up camera footage of the falling overboard.
The vessel adjusted her course and sent out a rescue team, that found the missing passenger at 7:13 a.m. However, she showed no signs of life and was declared her dead.
