A male passenger died after falling four stories on a Carnival cruise ship during a recent cruise, according to a news station in Fort Meyers, Florida.
The newspaper did not identify the Carnival cruise ship in its article as it was published last night, although a video produced by WINK News showed photos taken by Carnival Horizon .
The video was taken from a balcony on deck nine down to an outer deck on level five.
Reporting is based on accounts of a vacationing family who were staying in a cabin on the ninth floor where the passenger victim was at. An employee of the Carnival ship told the family that the passenger fell from the ninth floor to the fifth, which was reportedly closed after the fall.
The newspaper did not indicate when the incident happened, even though the cruise ship docked yesterday morning in Miami, where the Miami Police Department reportedly started an investigation.
To our knowledge, there have so far been no posts about the incident on social media.
Carnival Horizon returned to Miami yesterday after a one-week cruise to Jamaica, Caymans and Mexico after leaving Miami November 10, 2019.
