Stranded mother pleads and sobs as cruise ship sails away with her kids on board

- A distraught mother was left sobbing and pleading at a Nassau, Bahamas, pier as her cruise ship sailed off with her young children on board.

A YouTube video, taken from a deck of the Norwegian Breakaway, shows the mother and her husband pull up in a golf cart just as the ship is departing.

The mother drops to her knees, waving desperately to capture the crew's attention.

"You see that right there? That is someone that has missed the boat," the man behind the video camera says. "And, apparently, she has her kids on the boat, and she’s not on there."
