Year Old Girl Dead After Falling in Cruise Ship At PortMiami

POLICE in Miami say an 8-year-old girl fell to her death Saturday from a cruise ship that had been docked there.

Carnival said in a statement that the child, whose name was not released, fell from a deck on the Carnival Glory's atrium to a lower deck on Saturday.

She was transported to the nearby Ryder Trauma Center in "extremely critical condition", but tragically passed away.

Police have opened an investigation into the event while the ship has resumed normal operations.

"The ship's medical team responded immediately and the child was transported to the ship's medical center", Carnival Cruise Lines spokeswoman Jayme Eglin said in an email.

Bob Dorr, a passenger and retired former emergency medical technician, who was also on the ship, said he was the first person to start CPR on the girl, while a police officer was holding her neck.

A statement from Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines, a subsidiary of US-British Carnival Corporation & PLC, to 7News said: Our most heartfelt condolences are with the family at this very hard time.

Carnival representatives and police declined Sunday to answer further questions, including whether there was any reason to suspect foul play or exactly where on the ship the fall occurred. Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, police said.

Emergency services worked to revive the girl at the scene. The ship was scheduled to depart from Florida at 4pm Saturday afternoon and travel to the Bahamas.
