A 73-year-old cruise ship passenger who was travelling on the Aida Cara cruise ship fell into the sea this week. The Italian registered cruise ship was sailing from Cape Verde to La Palma and had planned to stop at several more ports.
The cruise ship arrived at La Palma five hours later than the scheduled time after conducting an initial search in the area where the disappearance was first reported. Maritime Rescue also sent a ship, a plane and a helicopter, but without success of finding the victim of this incident.
Judicial investigations are now taking place in Italy.
