The survivor of what investigators say was a suicide leap off a
cruise ship in Norway awoke from a long coma to say she may have
been pushed.

Laura Stuardo, a 53-year-old banker from Italy, miraculously
survived the July 19 fall of 115 feet. She told police she fell

Fortuna luxury cruise ship, The Washington Post reported Friday,
citing the Italian newspaper La Stampa.

“I don’t remember if he pushed me, but I certainly didn’t want
to commit suicide,” she told La Stampa, according to the Post.
“It was an extremely long drop. I screamed, then there was an
impact with the water. I don’t remember anything else.”

Stuardo told La Stampa her relationship with her 55-year-old
boyfriend had turned violent when he came home one night drunk

Pia visit her in the hospital, according to the Post.
