USA Today reports a second lawsuit has been filed Carnival Cruise Lines.
- Lisa Williams, 42, of Houston claims to have suffered severe dehydration and bruising from aggressive food lines on the crippled ship.
- Williams was so ill from the five-day ordeal that she had to be given intravenous fluids in a hospital emergency room when she returned home to Houston.
- “Plaintiff has been exposed to extremely toxic and debilitating conditions resulting in severe and permanent injuries,” the lawsuit alleges.
- The lawsuit follows one filed by a passenger on Friday, just hours after the 102,000-ton Carnival Triumph reached a dock in Mobile, Ala.
- In the first suit, Texas resident passenger Cassie Terry, 25, of Brazoria County, Texas says Carnival “failed to provide a seaworthy vessel and sanitary conditions.” She’s seeking compensation for “physical and emotional harm, anxiety, nervousness and the ‘loss of enjoyment of life.”
