Unbelievable Carnival

Posted by Val Fox on April 24, 2012 at 10:35 AM

The tragic death of two panamanian fishermen might have been prevented if alerts by passengers had only reached the bridge.  Carnival Cruise Lines is once again under fire for allegedly abandoning a small vessel carrying three men who's stranded vessel had been drifting for two weeks in March, with no water or food.


Witnesses on the Star Princess cruise ship reported seeing the men waving frantically for aid.  Thinking the information had gotten to the captain,  passengers were horrified as the ship kept going, rather than turning around to assist the stranded boat.  Two men died shortly after the sighting.


UNBELIEVABLE!
