The US Coast Guard has identified the woman who jumped from the cruise ship that was hosting Mad Decent Boat Party as Kaylyn Rose Sommer, 24, from Charleston, SC. 

We are not sure what the tipping point was for Kaylyn, but there are a number of possibilities that may have provoked her to leave the ship. Right now our thoughts are with her friends and family during this difficult time. Mad Decent has also released a statement regarding the situation and have decided to direct the ship back to port.

"We are deeply saddened by the news that one of our guests on our current cruise went overboard on November 12. The Coast Guard is now leading all search and rescue efforts and the ship is enroute back to Miami. The safety and security of our guests and the ship’s crew is our number one priority, all appropriate safety precautions will continue to be taken for this and all of our events. Our hearts go out to the family and all involved in this incident, and we will continue to support those affected during this difficult time."

We'll have more information as it arises.
