This is the terrifying moment a teen baseball player leaps from a Bahamas cruise liner “as a dare” – in a video posted only days after the US Coast Guard called off the search.

According to eyewitnesses, a haunting video shows Cameron Robbins, 18, of Louisiana, US, plunging overboard without a life jacket while his friends encourage him.

The teenager, who had just graduated days ago from the University Laboratory School in Baton Rogue, was seen in just his swimming trunks before suddenly disappearing.

Passengers onboard were stunned Cameron jumped off as one person can be heard saying “This kid f****** jumped off!”

Another said, “Oh my f****** god. Oh, shut the f*** up. Oh, bye…bye… Oh … s***!”

Concerns quickly grew for the teenager as one person shouted “Grab the buoy.. grab the buoy.”

According to eyewitnesses, Cameron, who was only a few feet away from the ship, began drifting in the opposite direction away from the buoy before disappearing into darkness.

The US Coast Guard was deployed to seek for the missing adolescent on Wednesday, but the search was formally called off late Friday.

Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Spado, the Coast Guard’s liaison officer in the Bahamas, said that numerous agencies had been dispatched to search for Cameron.

“The United States Coast Guard District Seven deployed multiple search and rescue assets in response to an agency assistance request from our Royal Bahamas Defence Force partners,” he added.

“‘Our Coast Guard command centre and aircrews based in Miami supported RBDF search and rescue efforts since the initial report Wednesday evening, and continued through Friday evening.

‘We were informed by the RBDF this evening that they were suspending the active search efforts pending further developments, and were not requesting further Coast Guard assistance after notifying the Robbins family.

“We offer our sincerest condolences to Cameron Robbins’ family and friends.”

A GoFundMe campaign has been created for the teen’s family, who are in a “unimaginable situation.”

“Cameron’s mother, Shari, is an indescribably amazing teacher, and her kindness and devotion have helped countless children throughout her career,” stated the campaign.

“Please donate as you can and share this fundraiser to support her and her family through this unimaginable situation.

“Devastated family continued to pray and hope for Cameron’s return: ‘Please continue to pray for Cameron, Cassie, Cole, Shari and Will. My heart is so heavy.”

Cameron’s baseball coach paid tribute to the teenager and called him a “fierce competitor.”

Justin Morgan said: “Cameron is a kid who is truly loved by his teammates, teachers, and fellow classmates.

“He is a fierce competitor on the baseball field. He is a hard worker both on and off of the playing field.

“Our school community is struggling right now but hoping for the very best.

“Our thoughts and prayers have been and will remain with the Robbins family during this difficult time.”

University Lab School Director Kevin George said Cameron attended the school for all thirteen years of his education.

In a statement he said: “‘Extra counsellors will be available on campus to speak with students and faculty who are struggling to process this news.

“Our thoughts are with the Robbins family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts as well.”
