This weekend, KHOU news station reports from Galveston, Texas that the Carnival Triumph returned to port Saturday afternoon "after a passenger had a medical emergency."
KHOE didn’t explain the medical emergency but reported that the U.S. Coast Guard said the medical emergency was not life-threatening, "so they did not fly out to the cruise ship." The cruise ship then told the Coast Guard that it would be "just easier for the ship to return to port and drop the passenger off."
That’s the end of the reported story.
If that’s not sufficiently uninformative, here’s another one from Canada’s Herald News: the police are investigating a "sudden death" aboard Holland America Line’s Eurodam after a woman was found dead.
The police in Canada said that the death of the 59-year-old passenger “is not considered suspicious at this time.”
The newspaper also reports that medical examiner’s officer was called to the scene and "no further information is available."
Are you satisfied with this type of "news?"
Do you believe that the details of stories like this are any of your business?
Do you think that the cruise lines and official authorities will tell you all you are entitled to know?
