Clemson student climbs Carnival Ecstasy’s mast and falls to his demise

SEPTEMBER 29– A 20-year-old man has died after falling from the forward mast of a cruise ship as it was on its way back to the port of Miami.

Miami-Dade police has identified the victim as 20-year-old North Carolina native and Clemson University student, Kendall Wernet. According to investigations, Wernet along with five or six others climbed the ship’s mast to catch the sunrise, dodging several clear warning signs on their way up. As they were gathered on the Carnival Ecstasy’s mast, the radar system was turned on and apparently caught Wernet, causing him to fall 20-feet onto the deck below.

Evidence points to this unfortunate incident as an accident, with no proof that there was alcohol or foul play involved.

Our entire Miami based legal team at The Vucci Law Group, P.A. sends our condolences to Kendall’s friends and family in this unfortunate time.
