The effort to rescue a man who fell from a cruise ship off the Mississippi coast shifted to a search for the body, although his wife of less than two weeks was still hopeful he would be found alive. Matthew Scott Bjorn, 35, of Northport, Ala., fell from the Carnival Conquest on Sunday into a shipping channel in the Gulf of Mexico, officials said. Witnesses told authorities that Bjorn climbed over a railing during an argument with his wife.
