A Navy Seahawk helicopter from the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier brings supplies to the Carnival Splendor cruise ship during relief operations in waters off Mexico's Baja Peninsula on Nov. 9. The ship, which left from Long Beach, Calif., on Nov. 7, was 200 miles south of San Diego when an engine room fire cut its power early Nov. 8, according to a statement from Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines. The ship began drifting off the coast of northern Baja California. Navy helicopters shuttled in supplies on Nov. 9 to 4,500 passengers and crew members expected to remain stranded on the disabled cruise ship through Wednesday night.
