Last week, two cruise ship passengers were involved in a jet ski accident in the Bahamas. According to My Fox Orlando, one of the passengers was killed, while the other was seriously hurt and taken to a hospital. Their identities have not been released.
As Florida Today reported, the vessel, Carnival Sensation, set sail from Port Canaveral, Florida on Thursday, May 5 and returned on May 9.
As summer approaches, vacationers will be flocking to Florida’s many ports for the getaways to the Bahamas, Mexico, and other extravagant destinations. However, accidents aboard cruise ships can happen to anyone. They can vary from incidents such as food poisoning to an accident which can cause injury or even death such as falling overboard or, as with the passengers aboard the Carnival Sensation, an accident during recreational activities like jet skiing or snorkeling. If you have been injured while on your cruise, consult with an attorney to discuss your options.
