A cruise ship passenger, who was not named by the authorities, was taken via helicopter to a hospital in Miami, Florida after the person incurred a head injury while aboard Royal Caribbean International’s Majesty of the Seas on May 21, NBC South Florida reported.
The cause of the head wound is still unclear, although authorities placed the time of the accident at 11:30 p.m. in waters not far from Miami. Miami Fire Rescue Captain Robert Hevia said the victim was brought to Mercy Hospital and was promptly admitted to the emergency room. The cruise ship continued to the Bahamas as planned without any delay of its travel schedule.
Despite being famous for their convenience as an inclusive vacation, cruises can be a dangerous place to sustain an injury. It may result in an injured or ill passenger waiting for adequate medical treatment not readily available on the ship.
