Three individuals were airlifted via helicopter from two separate cruise ships owned by P&O Cruises, a company owned by Miami, Florida-based Carnival Corporation. The flights occurred in a window shorter than 24 hours last Wednesday, September 28.
One of the victims incurred a serious head injury while on-board one of the ships. According to the rescue team from Brisbane, Australia, the man who sustained a head injury while on-board the Pacific Pearl had to be evacuated for immediate medical treatment. A few hours later, two people aboard the Pacific Jewel were taken to a land hospital after falling ill. The details of their conditions were not revealed to the public. Both people were taken to Gold Coast Hospital in Southport, Queensland and were listed in stable condition.
Surely, falling ill while on a cruise ship can be very inconvenient and dangerous for an individual, especially since the necessary medication and resources are far from reach. If you are hurt in an accident on a cruise ship caused by the negligent actions of the company, you can take legal action against them. Seek the help of Louis A.
