In April 2016, a family was enjoying a cruise in the Bahamas… but things quickly took a turn for the worse.
An unidentified couple wandered the town when the boat docked, but missed their next departure and watched the ship sail away — with their two children on board!
Passenger Scott Thomas noticed the panicked mother drop to her knees as the massive Norwegian Breakaway cruise ship sailed off. He started filming, saying, “Apparently she has her kids on the boat and she’s not on there. There’s a guy there, too. That right there is not cool.”
With the parents stranded on land, their two kids — a boy about 9 and a girl about 12 — were left to fend for themselves aboard the 4,090-passenger ship.
“The dad was on the boat and the mom had not come on yet,” another passenger said. “So the ship told the dad to go find her before the ship left. Unfortunately, they couldn’t find the mom until the ship left.”
I can’t even begin to imagine what this nightmare was like to actually live through.
