What happened at the Carnival Miracle cruise ship?
At around 3.30am on Saturday morning, passengers of the Carnival Miracle cruise ship were awoken to an alert that someone had fallen overboard.
Passengers were in the midst of a three-day voyage from the Long Beach Cruise Terminal to Ensenada.
"Someone has lost their life, whether it was done by accident or by foul play I don't know," said Daniel Miranda, a Northern California firefighter paramedic onboard the ship, according to CBS Los Angeles.
"There's some high suspicion of foul play."
The outlet states that many passengers are also concerned the incident occured from foul play, after the woman fell from the fifth-floor balcony of her stateroom.
There are 12 decks on the Carnival Miracle cruise ship.
"A lot of people are concerned because that’s somebody’s life, and that’s a high likelihood that this person will not be found alive," Miranda added.
After over 31 hours of searching, the Coast Guard halted their efforts on Sunday, December 12, 2021.
"They did their best efforts to get crews out on little boats and rescue and start a search," said Miranda.
