[Video] Elevator Crushed Electrician to Death.

2196

The Carnival Ecstasy, a 2,056-passenger cruise ship was the place where the horrendous death of an electrician happened while working on an elevator during the final leg of a three-day cruise.  Sara Robinson and her family were on the ship and came upon the scene shortly after the accident.  She says the family was headed to late dining when they heard a person scream.

“We looked to our left, over at the elevator and there was blood all over the carpeting and down the elevator sides,” she said.  “You could actually hear the dripping of the blood coming down, which made us all sick to our stomach,” she said.

The family went into dinner and kept asking crew members what happened, but didn’t get any answers.  “It was terrible.  They wouldn’t tell us what happened,” she said.  “I knew it wasn’t minor,” she recalled. “I was thinking maybe he lost an arm or a leg, but I did not know that it would be as big as a death.”

Police and the cruise line are investigating the cause and have released no further details.  In a statement, the Miami-based cruise line says the accident occurred on an elevator.
