The Coast Guard says 32-year-old Rina Patel of Interlaken went overboard the Carnival Ecstasy cruise ship 27-miles southwest of the Bahamas.

Crews were notified that Patel went overboard around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday from the 11th deck. NBC News reports Patel was seen jumping overboard, according to Carnival.

A passenger on the cruise told NBC News, "Her husband was with her, and she has other family onboard. They were hysterical. Everyone is just in shock. It's one of those things you hear about but never expect to be a part of."

Search efforts are underway at this time to locate Patel.
