Tourist ‘tried to throw fiancee overboard cruise ship’ during dream holiday

A man tried to murder his fiancee by shoving her overboard a luxury cruise ship, it is alleged.

David James Fysh, 46, is said to have grabbed his partner, known only as Kim, by the back of the arms on board The Radiance of the Sea.

The five-star ship, operated by Royal Caribbean, had not long left Sydney, Australia, for Tasmania last month when the alleged attack happened.

But Fysh has since denied attempted murder and is set to face trial in Australia.

It’s alleged he first locked Kim on the balcony after a dispute ruined their dream holiday.

Kim, who was wearing a silky robe, told Aussie TV show A Current Affair she freed herself after she "slipped out of his grip like a ninja".

Cruise staff were alerted to the incident and detained Fysh, himself from Australia.

A spokesman for Royal Caribbean said: "Our security staff responded to the incident and Tasmania Police were notified and attended the ship on arrival in Hobart.

"Royal Caribbean is co-operating fully with authorities. At Royal Caribbean, the safety and security of our guests and crew is our highest priority.

"We have a zero tolerance policy to any form of violence or crime onboard our ships."

The suspect was refused bail and will stand trial on February 4.
