A British woman was pulled from the water in Croatia 10 hours after falling off a cruise ship into the Adriatic Sea.

"She said the fact that she practices yoga helped as she was fit", one of her rescuers told local media. And she said she was singing to not feel cold in the sea overnight, " the unnamed rescuer said.

Kay Longstaff, 46, went overboard off the coast of Croatia as the Norwegian Star made its way to Venice.

"On the cruiser ship they thought she is not". I spoke [to her] throughout the whole week.

There were some unconfirmed claims by the ship's staff that Longstaff must have jumped overboard, as falling off a cruise liner is nearly impossible.

British tourist Kay Longstaff speaks to the press upon her arrival in Pula with the Croatias coast guard ship, on August 19, 2018, which saved her after falling off a cruise ship near Croatian coast. "So these wonderful guys rescued me", said Longstaff.

"It is a real miracle that she is alive", Oreskovic said.

A port authority captain in Pula, Croatia, where the passenger was hospitalized, told HRT that authorities were still investigating the fall but said her chances for survival were high because the sea's temperature is "very warm".

Longstaff is a British citizen but now lives on Spain's Costa del Sol.

The spokeswoman said: "We are very happy that the individual, who is a United Kingdom resident, is now safe and will soon be reunited with friends and family". The Croatian Coast Guard launched an air and sea search early Sunday morning.

Her boyfriend, who was quizzed by police in Venice after the cruise ship docked, reportedly told investigators the pair had been fighting when he left her on her own.

MailOnline quoted Irena Hrstić, a spokeswoman for the hospital, as saying Longstaff was being "assessed for stress" but is "physically fine".
