Cruise ship crewmember overboard off Hawaii

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a crew member who apparently jumped overboard from a cruise ship off Hawaii.

The Coast Guard says the overboard man is a 34-year-old Filipino national working aboard the Grand Princess. He was last seen Monday night. The Coast Guard was notified at about midnight.

Princess Cruises spokeswoman Julie Benson says surveillance footage shows the man intentionally jumping overboard.

The cruise ship was en route to Hawaii's Big Island on a 15-day trip after leaving from San Francisco on Saturday. About 3,000 passengers and 1,000 crewmembers are onboard.

The man was reported overboard about 1,000 miles northeast of Hilo.

The cruise ship, its sister ship Star Princess and container ship Horizon Reliance are helping with the search.
