Woman Banned From Cruise Line for Life After Climbing Over Side of Ship for Selfie

Woman Banned From Cruise Line for Life After Climbing Over Side of Ship for Selfie

A woman has been banned from Royal Caribbean cruise ships for life after she climbed over the ship's railing to try to take a dangerous selfie.

The incident occurred on the Allure of the Seas (pictured above) as it was nearing Labadee, Haiti. You can see a photo taken by a passenger, Peter Blosic, who reported the woman, below:

Blosic says he was on his balcony when he saw the woman climb on the railing. He decided to alert the crew as he was unsure of her intentions and wanted to be safe. It turns out that the woman made the dangerous decision to climb overboard simply for a selfie. The cruise line did not take kindly to the stunt, later tracking her down and removing her from the vessel when it docked in Jamaica. She was subsequently banned from all Royal Caribbean cruises for life, with the company reiterating in a statement how seriously they take safety.

I think people need to stop competing for the "Best Ever Selfie".

They should have left her alone and let natural selection do it's job!

Then get sued for billions for letting natural selection over-ride common sense.

Another symptom of putting smartphone cameras in the hands of EVERYONE!!!

People have always done stupid, dangerous stuff.

It's just that now they document it for everyone to see.
