Two spring breakers are lucky to be alive after falling off their jet ski in the waters of Port Canaveral, which left them stranded and right in the path of a Carnival cruise ship.
A passenger captured the rescue on video as Brevard County Sheriff's Deputy Taner Primmer pulled the women to safety Saturday.
A Canaveral Pilots Association statement says Captain Doug Brown spotted them while navigating the Carnival Magic out of the port and alerted Primmer.
The lucky ladies, 19-year-old Skylar Penpasuglia and 20-year-old Allison Garrett, both of Princeton, West Virginia, were on the edge of the channel where they are allowed to be before falling off their personal watercraft and into harm's way. Neither will face charges from the incident.
