An 18-year-old Panamanian fisherman who survived 28 days adrift at sea is suing Princess Cruise Lines, arguing that the cruise ship whose crew members saw him stranded should have stopped and saved him. The behavior of crew members of the Star Princess was outrageous, shocking, atrocious and utterly intolerable in a civilized community. Even though crew members "had clear knowledge that people were stranded in an open boat hundreds of miles from shore in the Pacific Ocean and desperately calling for help," the lawsuit says, "they consciously ignored the emergency situation," R. Dickman, a lawyer for Vasquez, said, "The cruise ship's crew didn't want to get off schedule... and lose money."
