The Tampa Police, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement agencies successfully rescued passengers on a Starship Cruise near the Tampa Convention Center Wednesday afternoon. While the action looked real,  the operation was a mock rescue in 96 degree heat and humidity.  Tampa Police tweeted video of officers rappelling down from a helicopter above the cruise ship. The public was invited to watch it all from the Tampa Convention Center from Noon to 2 p.m. today.  —Carol Lim
