"James Michael Grimes was found by a bulk carrier vessel, a harrowing 20 hours after he fell off the Carnival Valor on the night of November 23. Lt. Seth Gross oversees search and rescue missions in the greater Louisiana Gulf Coast area, and said his rescue crew arrived just in time to save Grimes' life."

"During the five-day cruise from Cozumel to Mexico, Mr Grimes left the bar to use the toilet. In an interview with ABC News on Friday, December 2, he said he woke up in the ocean, and could no longer see the ship."
