Crew Member Killed in Elevator Accident on Carnival Cruise

A man who worked for Carnival Cruise as an electrician was killed in an elevator accident over the weekend. According to reports on KFOR.com, the electrician was working in the elevator shaft when the elevator descended. Carnival has not commented on the situation beyond stating that a crew member had died and that the company extended their condolences and support to the family of the deceased.

The scene of the accident was first discovered by passengers on the cruise who filmed footage of blood streaming down the elevator door. Apparently, there was also a passenger inside of the elevator at the time of the accident. Soon after the scene was discovered, crew members closed off the area. Though an investigation is reportedly underway, it is not clear why the elevator was not deactivated prior to the accident.
