According to a post by iThemePark a guest jumped overboard on a Ferry Boat at the Seven Seas Lagoon on the way to the Ticket and Transportation Center near the Magic Kingdom.
The incident occurred around 7:00pm on Monday, December 30th.
As soon as the woman jumped overboard Guests & Crew Members started shouting Man Overboard.
I was on the boat when this happened. She fell off the top deck and was rescued by a rescue boat. She was about 300 yards from the ferry when she was rescued.
