A teenage boy plunged to his death over the side of the 16th deck of a massive cruise ship heading for Miami after a trip to the Caribbean.

The 15-year-old’s fall prompted a series of “man overboard” announcements, shown in chilling footage captured on board MSC Seashore.

Fox News reported that the cruise company told them that the 7.30pm fall last Wednesday was an apparent suicide.

The cruise ship was at the tail-end of a five-day journey in the Caribbean, the New York Post reported.

A passenger on board the MSC Seashore cruise captured the moment the “man overboard” announcement was made through the ship’s loudspeaker system after three horn blasts.

“Oh my God, oh my God,” the clearly shocked woman says in the footage that was posted to YouTube.

“It’s awful. Can we stop, can we please stop,” she continues, breaking into tears.

Miami-Dade police responded to Port Miami on Thursday to investigate.

A spokesman told Fox News that “no foul is suspected.”

A cruise line spokesperson said: “A young man travelling with his family on board MSC Seashore appears to have died of suicide Wednesday evening.

“Our team immediately notified authorities and our care team is assisting the young man’s family on board.”

“All of us at MSC Cruises are heartbroken,” the company added in their statement. “The family remains in our thoughts and prayers.”

A passenger told Crew Center: “We just had three emergency blasts following the captain’s announcement ‘Man Overboard’.

“People started running to the sides to investigate what happened, although it’s nighttime.”

The liner runs cruises to the Caribbean and Antilles and also to the Ocean Cay MSC marine reserve, a private island in the Bahamas.

The 169,400-ton ship is 76 metres tall and holds 1648 crew and 5632 passengers.
