6-Year Old Dies on Board Carnival Cruise Ship

by at . Comments

Very sad news today out of Florida:

A six-year old boy passed away after drowning in a crowded swimming pool aboard a Carnival Cruise ship.

Carnival Cruise Line

Detective Javier Baez of the Miami-Dade Police Department told reporters that the incident took place when the child was playing with his older brother, as the unidentified victim was "found at the bottom of the pool."

Attempts to administer CPR were unfortunately not successful.

Authorities are talking to witnesses and speaking today with the boy's family, which hails from Winter Garden.

This tragedy comes nearly two years after 32 people died in a Carnival Cruise ship sinking off the Italian coast in early 2012.

I agree with MirandaArgent. People are responsible for their children, no matter where they are. And another note....it wasn't a Carnival ship that sank in 2012. It was Costa, which is owned by Carnival Corp, among a few other cruise companies.

The child did not die because he was on a cruise ship. He drowned because his parents were not supervising him properly. Put the blame where blame is due. If he had died in a neighborhood backyard pool this would not have made the national news.
