A Brevard County Sheriff's Deputy saved two women on jet skis from a fatal collision with a oncoming cruise ship on Saturday in Port Canaveral, Florida.

"If someone gets too close to one of these ships when they're not supposed to, there's no way it's going to be safe", Murray said, according to the newspaper.

Frantic shouts of "Get in, get in!" can be heard on the video as the tiny boat is cast into the shadow of the huge ferry that is getting ever-closer.

Primmer rushed to the area and managed to pull them into the sheriff's unit boat just in time. Brown then directed the cruise ship away from the jet skiers while Primmer helped them to safety and sped away.

A cruise ship passenger captured the rescue on video as Brevard County Sheriff's Deputy Taner Primmer pulled the women to safety Saturday. As the ship moved through the water, Skylar Penpasuglia, 19, and Allison Garrett, 20, both of Princeton, West Virginia, were riding a jet ski in Port Canaveral.

"I couldn't be prouder of the actions of Deputy Taner Primmer, a member of our SeaPort Security Marine Unit who placed his life in peril without hesitation to rescue the young girls, and the Harbor Master Pilot, who not only maintained communication with the deputy, but was able to safely veer the ship, providing Deputy Primmer the extras seconds needed", Ivey told Florida Today.

Pentasuglia followed up her friend's comment, writing in part, "I'd just like to tell him thank you again for helping us in that awful situation".

"As the two frantically tried to right the jet ski, the wind pushed them into the Port channel; directly into the path of the outgoing cruise ship", the sheriff's office wrote. "He was truly a hero yesterday", Pentasuglia said.
