An investigation has been launched after a Norwegian Cruise Line employee fell off a ship.

The Getaway, a 54.5 m cruise ship, was off the coast of Cuba when the 33-year-old employee fell overboard.

He was rescued 22 hours later when he was picked up by a different cruise ship. He was not wearing a life preserver.

A Coast Guard search covered over 4000 square kilometers.
