(MIAMINEWTIMES) — This past Friday, Bill Todhunter was bringing in the trash cans from the driveway when he heard his wife screaming. He left the cans and rushed out back to the couple’s deck at their home overlooking Port Everglades.

There, just a short distance away, the 2,850-passenger Celebrity Equinox was headed straight toward them.

“No! Stop!” his wife Yasmine yelled at the cruise ship. “Too close! Get out!”
