"We can confirm the death of a guest on Carnival Horizon as the ship was returning to Miami on Friday evening," read a statement from Carnival Cruise Line. "Our CareTeam continues to provide support to the guest's family, and we cooperated with the standard law enforcement investigation when the ship arrived to PortMiami on Saturday morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with the guest's family."
WINK news in Fort Myers, Florida, reported the male passenger fell four stories while the ship was at sea. The TV station talked to a local woman who said she had a cabin on the ninth deck, the same as the passenger who fell, and she talked about the scene after the fall.
