Port Miami Cruise Ships

An eight-year-old girl has died after falling from the balcony of a cruise ship's interior atrium while docked at a port in Miami.

Carroll said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue originally received the call after 8 a.m. and Miami Fire Rescue responded to help.

Carroll said the 8-year-old girl fell about two stories inside the cruise ship when the ship was said to have just arrived and everyone was disembarking at the port after a week-long trip.

"She was subsequently transferred via ambulance to a local hospital".

Today in Miami there are five cruise ships docked including Carnival Glory, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Vista, MSC Divina and Norwegian Escape. The ship's command immediately contacted Miami-Dade Police Department which is on site. "Not sure exactly what happened, how the child fell, but we understand that the child may have fallen about 20 or so feet from a landing", Capt. Ignatius Carroll said.
