Cruise ship elevator accidents
Families aboard the Carnival Ecstasy Sunday evening met a gruesome scene on their way to dinner. As they approached the restaurant, blood poured out of the elevator doors with a noise so loud it was described “as a rainstorm.” At the same time workers aboard the cruise ship tried to keep passengers away from the scene, herding them back into the restaurant. Another witness compared the occurrence to “a real life scene of ‘The Shining’” – a 1980’s horror film starring Jack Nicholson. The elevator was later sealed off to shield passengers and their children from the elevator and the area nearby.
