RIGA - A Latvian man who fell overboard while travelling on a Tallink cruise liner from Stockholm to Riga has still not been found, rescue workers say.

The man fell overboard at appoximately 2:45 in the morning. A search involving numerous boats and helicopters ensued, but rescuers were unable to locate the man by the time the search was called off at about 8 am.

Medics say it is unlikely that the man would be able to survive for more than a few minutes in the frigid waters.
