Two crew members jumped into St. Lawrence River
Two crew members of the 'Celebrity Summit'jumped from the ship on Oct 1, 2019. Canadian fire-rescue and Coastguard departments rescued them both from the Saint Lawrence River in Quebec City. A 27 year old man first jumped into the river from the cruise ship, which had been moored at the Port of Quebec since Sep 30. The incident occurred around 5:40 a.m., and the crew member was sighted by patrolmen from the Port of Quebec near the cruise terminal. A patrol officer went down the quay ladder and rescued the man. The temperature of the river was reportedly about 13° celsius and the crew member was hypothermic when rescued. The Canadian Coast Guard rescued the second crew member, a 36 year old man, around 7 a.m. after he drifted with the current around five kilometers down the river. He also suffered from hypothermia. Both men were taken to the hospital after they were rescued. The men were believed to be from Zimbabwe and the United Arab Emirates. It was believed that they may have attempted to immigrate into Canada illegally. The ship left Quebec City in the afternoon of Oct 1. It is unknown whether the cruise line returned the employees to the ship or whether the men remained in the hospital with the intention of flying them back to their respetcive counties when they were released from medical care.
