Tragedy happened as passengers waited to disembark
A girl aged eight has fallen to her death in the atrium of a cruise ship docked in Miami. She fell several floors down to a lower deck of the Carnival Glory.
The Carnival Cruise Lines ship had just arrived in Port Miami after completing a weeklong Caribbean voyage and passengers were waiting to disembark when the tragedy happened.
A witness later told 7News Miami, “It happened so fast. She just fell over.”
Emergency staff on the ship tried to save the girl’s life while others used sheets to try to shield the scene from the passengers.
“She had severe injuries,” said medical technician Bob Dorr. “I started doing CPR until the doctor showed up, and then the doctor took over.”
The girl was rushed to Ryder Trauma Center where she later died. Her family is believed to be from the Bahamas.
