Carnival Cruise Ship Rescues Adrift Sailors
Carnival Valor (2:24 p.m. EST) -- Carnival Valor rescued five sailors from a sinking ship earlier this morning. Two of the deck's officers sustained minor injuries during the rescue.

The Carnival Cruise Lines ship was sailing off the coast of St. Maarten when bridge crew received a radio call from a pleasure boat in distress. When the ship arrived on the scene, the vessel was sinking in inclement weather.

Carnival Valor crew lowered a rescue boat to pick up two women and three men, who were brought onboard and evaluated by the ship's medical staff and given food and water. Two of Carnival Valor's deck officers sustained minor cuts during the rescue.

The ship was on the last leg of a seven-night cruise that departed San Juan on December 15. The ship is currently docked in St. Maarten, where the five sailors were disembarked.
