Florida officials narrowly rescue jet skiers from oncoming cruise ship

A Carnival (cuk) cruise ship came dangerously close to two people on a jet ski on Saturday in Port Canaveral, Florida.

While attempting to get back on board, the panicked vacationer accidentally flipped the jet ski over completely.

"Did we run over the jet ski?" one cruise ship passenger asks in the video.

Brown steered the ship away from the pair as Primmer hurried to pull them on board his Sheriff's Office boat. As this occurred, the 130,000-ton Carnival Magic cruise ship was heading directly toward the two stranded women. As he approached in a marine patrol boat, one woman fell off the jet ski. A statement from the Canaveral Pilots Association said the cruise ship was being navigated by pilot Captain Doug Brown when he noticed the personal water craft in navigation channel in the vicinity of the jetties.

Primmer, he said, "placed his life in peril without hesitation to rescue the Port visitors", Ivey said.

Skylar Penpasuglia, 19, and Allison Garrett, 20, were enjoying their spring break in Port Canaveral, Florida, when their vacation almost turned into a catastrophe.

Garrett took to Facebook following the incident to thank Primmer for his actions. "We were extremely lucky to have him there to help us", Allison Garrett wrote in a comment on the Brevard sheriff's post.

Brown and Carnival Magic's captain and bridge team maneuvered the ship away from the Primmer and the two women while Primmer pulled both women aboard his patrol boat to move "out of harm's way".

Pentasuglia followed up her friend's comment, writing in part, "I'd just like to tell him thank you again for helping us in that bad situation".
