8-year-old dies after falling from cruise ship in Miami

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.

Jason Aldean Has Heartfelt Words for Tulsa
Days following the massacre, the singer announced he canceled a series of concerts out of respect for the victims. Aldean was onstage when the shooting started.

It's unclear what led the child to fall.

'Our most heartfelt care and concern is with the family at this very hard time.', Cruz added in the statement.

Control of the ship was returned to Carnival, and the investigation was continuing, police said.

Police continue to investigate the incident. He also said in a statement investigators were working closely with Carnival Cruise Lines personnel "to determine the details surrounding this incident".
