The British air hostess who survived 10 hours floating at sea might have jumped off the cruise ship after a drunken row with her boyfriend, rather than falling back. Allegations surfaced on Monday suggesting Miss Longstaff had been arguing with her boyfriend in the hours before she plunged into the Adriatic Sea from the seventh deck of the liner about 75 ft above the water.
Many also suggested there was no way she could have accidentally fallen from the ship, insisting that the security barriers were simply too too high to topple over.
The Daily Mail reports she suffered an injury to her face when she landed in the sea.
A source with knowledge of the rescue operation told the paper: “She had hypothermia and a haematoma on her right cheek from where she hit the water.
“It was at the very moment that she thought she wouldn’t survive, that was when the boat arrived to save her.”
It comes after the Sun Online revealed she jumped off the cruise ship after a drunken row with her boyfriend.
The Sun reports that an Italian said that cops are working on the theory Kay “most likely jumped” and there was no foul play. Her dad Ron told The Daily Mail his daughter had been “going through a very hard time” prior to the incident. Kay, who looked after footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger, F1 heiress Tamara Ecclestone and other celebs as air hostess, was discharged from a psychiatric unit in Croatia where she was assessed for signs of stress. She was said to have had an “emotional, full of love” reunion with her boyfriend Craig Rayment.
