On Saturday, two young women who were celebrating spring break by jet skiing in the Port Canaveral harbor were nearly killed when their jet ski overturned. However, that wasn’t what put them in so much danger. It just so happens that 19-year-old Skylar Penpasuglia and 20-year-old Allison Garrett fell into the water in the direct path of a Carnival Cruise liner.
The pilot of the ship, Captain Doug Brown, noticed that the women were in the path of his cruise liner. He notified Deputy Taner Primmer, who arrived on the scene in a patrol boat just as the women fell overboard. Captain Brown stated that the wind was pushing the ladies right in his path, and that it was very difficult for him to steer away from them. Video taken by one of the passengers of the cruise liner shows just how close these ladies came to being killed by the ship. It also shows one ballsy deputy who put his life on the line to rescue them.
