A British woman has been rescued after spending 10 hours in the Adriatic Sea at night having fallen from a cruise ship, according to Croatia’s coastguard.
The unidentified woman has been taken to a hospital in Pula in Croatia and is understood to be out of danger.
She fell from the Norwegian Star cruise ship, about 60 miles (97km) off Croatia’s coast shortly before midnight on Saturday as the vessel was making its way to Venice.
A Croatian rescue ship was scrambled and found the woman on Sunday morning swimming not far from where she was believed to have fallen.

Don't drink and wander around a cruise ship at night?
If you know proper water survival techniques such as making flotation devices out of your clothes then being out there for a night is not a huge deal for a young healthy person. After that you start running in to dehydration issues.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

Fat floats. Especially in salt water. Was she slightly over weight?
