Why Are there So Many Cruise Liner Deaths?
Tragedy struck an innocent family after their eight year old daughter died on a cruise ship. The tragedy is one of dozens that happen each year. The growing issue of cruise line safety is not appropriately addressed on the state or federal level.
Fox40 reported on the situation with Miami-Dade police. The girl died on a Carnival Cruise Lines ship Carnival Glory. The ship docked at Port Miami. The girl fell from the ship’s interior atrium to the lower deck around 8:15 am. First responders transported her to Jackson Memorial Hospital where she died. A spokesperson for the Fire-Rescue said she fell about 20 feet.
Potential Fault on the Cruise Line
Carnival apologized to the family, but it is clear this is not enough. Authorities allowed the ship to resume normal operations. However, a death deserves a closer look. Rescuers and investigators must thoroughly review the ship and ensure no future similar event. Each life is precious. We do not need such disasters as occurred here. Furthermore, the line clearly did not live up to expectations.
The family has many potential approaches. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to prevent a future such horror. In addition, Carnival and other liners should take safety more seriously. It is the least they could do. Our team is looking into the causes of the accident.
