Man Dies after Falling from Carnival Ecstasy’s Mast

A 20-year old man died having fallen from the cruise ship Carnival Ecstasy while docked in the port of Miami, Florida on Monday morning, September 29.


The ill-fated passenger fell from the ship’s 20-feet mast after he entered the restricted area with a group of about six other passengers, and climbed the mast to, reportedly, watch the sun rise.

The young man, a student of Clemson University, fell from the mast, once the cruise ship’s radar system resumed operation.

According to Carnival, the ship’s medical team rushed to the ship’s decking below to render medical assistance to the passenger, who was subsequently taken to the hospital where he passed away.

Carnival Ecstasy was on her way back from a Caribbean voyage when the accident occurred.
