A Carnival Cruise Line passenger who fell overboard on Wednesday night was rescued in the Gulf of Mexico by the US Coast Guard on Thursday.

The Carnival Valor left New Orleans bound for Cozumel, Mexico on Wednesday.

The passenger, an unnamed man, was last seen leaving a bar on the ship around 11 p.m. Wednesday by his sister. He was reported missing on Thursday after discovering he never returned to his room.

The Coast Guard was called at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, with the Valor assisting with rescue efforts.

“Carnival Valor has retraced its route to support search and rescue,” Carnival spokesman Matt Lupoli told CNN.

After the crew of another vessel spotted the unnamed man in the gulf, a Coast Guard helicopter was dispatched to airlift him to New Orleans. The Valor was released by the Coast Guard and resumed its journey to Cozumel.

The man was found reactive at the time of the rescue. He was treated by medical personnel at Lakefront Airport in New Orleans, Coast Guard NCO Ryan Graves told CNN.
