Two students rescued after fall off ship

Two college students from Colorado fell off the ninth floor of a cruise ship into the Gulf of Mexico in the dead of night eight days ago, treaded water for five hours, then were rescued with little or no injuries.

Celeste Clarice Partee, 20, a sophomore sociology major at the University of Colorado, suffered only a broken rib. After she was rescued, she got off the Grand Princess cruise ship at Costa Maya, Mexico.

"We're glad she's OK," University of Colorado spokesman Bronson Hilliard said Monday.

"It sounds like a harrowing tale . . . It's a good object lesson in being safe at spring break."

The person she was with at the time, Air Force Academy cadet Ernesto Guzman, continued on the remainder of the cruise.

The ship sailed from Galveston, Texas, on March 24. The pair, according to passengers, were re-enacting a scene from the movie Titanic where the lead characters lean against a forward rail.

Passengers alerted ship officials, who turned the ship around and asked crew and passengers to be silent until they could hear the muffled cries from the sea far below.
