The presumed death of Samantha Broberg--a 33-year-old American woman who fell off a Carnival ship late last month--has, again, turned a spotlight on cruise industry safety. 

 

Falling overboard is exceedingly rare. In 2015, the last year for which annual data is available, 27 people fell over railings, according to CruiseJunkie.com, a site that tracks man overboard incidents. About 22.23 million people were carried on cruises that year, according to Cruise Market Watch.

 

The percentage of people who fall overboard on a cruise ship is 0.0001215%.
