Norwegian Cruise Line passenger presumed dead after falling overboard — how common are these incidents?

A 63-year-old Korean woman is presumed dead after she went overboard from a Norwegian Cruise Line NCLH, -0.02% ship in the Mediterranean Sea this weekend.

The unnamed woman went missing Saturday morning as the Norwegian Epic traveled from Cannes, Frances, to Palma de Mallorca, Spain, the company told MarketWatch.

Passengers reported that Norwegian asked many of them to assist in looking for the woman, who was last seen wearing pink pajamas, according to U.K. publication The Sun. The search caused the ship to miss its planned call to Palma de Mallorca.

Norwegian has since called off the search for the woman.
