Newspapers in Italy are reporting that a 27 year old crew member died on July 14th on the MSC Preziosa.
Maria La Camera. known as "Titti" to her friends, worked aboard the MSC cruise ship as a hostess. She was found dying in her cabin, according to the newspaper Napoli Today.
Her co-employees made the discovery, after they went to her cabin when she did not show up for her shift. The cruise ship docked the following day at the port of Naples where local police inspected the cabin and will review video cameras to determine whether anyone entered the cabin. They will also be investigating whether she suffered from any personal problems, according to the newspapers.
The initial medical examination on board the ship suggested that the young woman may have died due to an aneurysm, which is unusual in a young woman. Her body will undergo an autopsy in Italy. Her family and friends described her as a healthy woman who did not use drugs, was of a cheerful disposition and was very good at her job.
