Carnival Passenger Killed on Jet Ski in the Bahamas

Multiple news stations are reporting today that a passenger from the Carnival Sensation cruise ship was fatally injured while in a serious accident involving a jet ski rented during a port call in Nassau. A second passenger sustained injuries and is recovering at a hospital in Nassau. Carnival states that the cruise passengers rented the jet ski directly from a local vendor. The U.S. Department of State has the following warning about water sports rentals in the Bahamas: "The water sports and scooter rental industries in The Bahamas are not carefully regulated. Every year people are killed or injured due to improper, careless, or reckless operation of scooters, jet-skis, and personal watercraft or scuba/snorkeling equipment. Visitors should rent equipment only from reputable operators, and should insist on sufficient training before using the equipment. There have been reports that some operators do not actually provide insurance coverage even when the renter opted (and paid) for insurance coverage. Visitors should insist on seeing proof that operators have sufficient medical and liability insurance." Carnival flew a "care team" from Miami to provide assistance to the passengers' families. Carnival issued a statement: "All of us are deeply saddened by this event and extend our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of those involved."
