British tourist rescued after swimming out to sea in pursuit of cruise liner


A British holidaymaker has been rescued from the sea after reportedly attempting to swim after a cruise ship which she thought her husband had boarded without her.

Susan Brown, 65, allegedly told hospital staff she jumped into the water and tried to catch up with the liner ‘Marco Polo’ because she mistakenly believed her partner was on it.

After four hours in the water she was rescued by Portuguese fishermen who heard her screaming “help me, help me” and was taken to hospital in a confused state and with advanced hypothermia.
