Joe Ryan of Henry County is back in Kentucky, after a frightening experience on a cruise ship in Europe.

The ship hit a reef on the Italian coast Friday. Six people died. More than 20 are still missing. Several Kentuckians were on the ship. They returned home Monday. Ryan says it was absolute chaos when the crash occurred.

"As soon as we got to the lifeboats, it was just panic," he told WHAS in Louisville. "Everyone was just so concerned with themselves. They were pushing people out of oars. People were trying to get onto a boat. People were screaming."

On Monday, Ryan bought new glasses and a cellphone, because the old ones are in the Mediterranean.
