Rescuers are searching the waters off the coast of Forster, Australia for 30-year-old Paul Rossington and 26-year-old Kristen Schroder. (Surveillance camera footage shows the pair falling from their Carnival deck on Wednesday night.) Investigators are looking into the possibility that they jumped overboard on purpose; a Carnival spokeswoman insists that the ship’s railing was built extra-high to prevent falls. Either way, the tragedy is not good for the image of the company responsible for this winter’s infamous poop cruise (and last year’s fatal capsizing incident.)
