Search underway for woman who fell overboard on cruise

A woman on the Carnival Elation fell two stories from her cabin's balcony and died on Friday morning, Gulliksen confirmed to news outlets.

A search effort has been launched for the overboard passenger and the Carnival Care team is supporting family and friends during this very hard time.

Citing passenger privacy concerns, Carnival was unable to say where the woman lives.

After stopping in Cozumel, the ship was to visit Progreso on Tuesday before returning to New Orleans on Thursday.

The ship had sailed from New Orleans when the incident happened.

Apple To Cancel iPhone X This Summer, Says KGI Securities
I think it's fair to say that the November launch of Apple's iPhone X marked the most exciting new iPhone release in years. The company believes that the tech giant will have a disappointing 2018 in terms of iPhone sales.

The Triumph was released from search and rescue operations and continued its route to Cozumel, Mexico, officials said Monday. She reportedly fell from the 14th deck to the 11th deck. "They were taking pictures [and everything]", the woman said in a text message to her mother that was shared with the Herald.

"The ship's medical team responded immediately, but, unfortunately, she passed away", Gulliksen said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased and her family". The website said the ship stopped and initiated a search and rescue and then began circling to search for the passenger.

Her uncle, Damien Fox, told ABC Local 10 at the time that some family members on the ship believed several people were pushing in an attempt to get out of an elevator may have accidentally caused the girl to fall.

The Valor and Carnival Glory, which will be replacing the Carnival Dream in New Orleans, will be carrying almost 400,000 on cruises out of the city starting in 2019, the website stated.
