The U.S. Coast Guard was searching Wednesday for a crew member who apparently fell from a cruise ship northwest of Puerto Rico, officials said.

The incident happened as the cruise ship was traveling from Puerto Rico to the Dominican Republic.

The Coast Guard said the cruise ship threw a lifeline and three life rings and launched a rescue boat to search for the man.

Authorities said the search is ongoing and that the cruise ship has continued its voyage.

A spokesperson for MSC Cruises did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
