US Citizen Passenger Falls, Dies on "Liberty of the Seas" Cruise-Ship

AP has reported that Barbara Wood, 47, of Middleborough, MA, fell down a flight of stairs while aboard Royal Caribbean's "Liberty of the Seas," and died of a head injury on January 30. The decedent apparently missed a step and fell further down the stairwell.

COMMENT: Cruise-ship passengers are reminded that as cruise-ships become larger and larger, with increased passenger density, it is vital that those aboard such vessels exercise extreme care when ascending and descending stairwells.

All cruise-ship passengers traveling out of their home country should also ensure that they have subscribed to international medical treatment and evacuation coverage in the event they are injured while on their trip.
