Witnesses Described Alarming Scene Similar to Horror Movie
A thorough investigation is now underway following a gruesome fatality that occurred aboard a Carnival Cruise Line cruise ship. According to The New York Daily News, the cruise line confirmed that a 66-year-old crew member was killed onboard its Carnival Ecstasy cruise ship shortly after Christmas, but that few additional details are currently available.
A passenger onboard the ship was among the first to witness the aftermath of the accident that occurred in one of the ship’s elevators. He described an alarming scene reminiscent of one in “The Shining,” an early 1980s horror movie based on the book of the same title, where blood came gushing out of elevator doors. The witness noted that cruise ship representatives offered to pay for limited counseling based on what he had seen. In a statement, Carnival expressed its condolences to the victim’s family members and assured the family it was working to determine the exact cause of the accident.
