Crew Member Falls from Vision of the Seas

We are sad to post that a crew member has died after falling from the Vision of the Seas cruise ship while docked in Livorno, Italy. According to the Maritime Executive, a 25-year-old Filipino crewman was working on the starboard side of the Royal Caribbean cruise ship on Thursday when he fell.

Many will say it’s impossible to fall overboard but in this case, it is believed the crew member was doing work which required a safety harness, It is not clear how he fell but it was when the ship was at Pier 47 at the Italian port next to a docked cargo ship.

A search was launched for the crewman after he fell into the water and divers from the fire department implemented a search. Sadly the body was later pulled out. We would truly like to send out condolences to the crew member’s family and friends back home along with his fellow crew members on Vision of the Seas.
