This is the moment a man was dramatically rescued from the ocean after he jumped from a cruise ship and spent an hour floating in the water.
The man, who has not been identified, was on board the MSC Orchestra sailing from South Africa to Mauritius when he plunged into the Indian Ocean on New Year's Eve.
Search teams were scrambled and spent an hour scouring ocean off the coast of Madagascar for him, before finally sighting him and bringing him back to the ship where he family were waiting.
