Twitter + Disney + Amver = Lives Saved

Well it's happened again. Another search and rescue case has been captured on Twitter. This time, however, an Amver ship was involved in the rescue. What happened?

Several days ago the cruise ship Disney Wonder, an Amver participant, was steaming back to Florida when they rescued a passenger that had gone overboard from a Carnival ship. Twitter user BigHeadDennis happened to see the rescue and Tweeted the message you see to the right. You can read the full story here.

Hats off to the master and crew of the Disney Wonder and to Gary Burke from the United States Coast Guard Operations Systems Center who alerted us to the case. Thanks Gary!

Have you Tweeted a rescue case on a cruise?
