FOX NEWS--A British woman who was rescued 10 hours after falling from a Norwegian Star cruise ship on Saturday credits singing and yoga for helping to survive the ordeal.
Kay Longstaff, 46, spent a night in the Adriatic Sea after she plunged from the ship's deck some 60 miles off the coast of Croatia. Officials on a Croatian rescue ship found the former Virgin Atlantic crew member Sunday morning, swimming close to where she fell.
An unidentified rescuer told The Sun that Longstaff credited her survival to yoga and singing.
"She said the fact that she practices yoga helped her as she was fit. And she said she was singing to not feel cold in the sea overnight,” the rescuer told the news site.
It’s unclear what led to Longstaff going overboard. Several passengers told The Sun that Longstaff and her partner appeared to be fighting before the incident.
Officials are investigating the incident.
