As reported in various media reports, one child has died from drowning and another child was hospitalized after being revived. Both were in a swimming pool aboard the Norwegian Breakaway as the vessel sailed from New York to Florida on a trip to the Bahamas.
One young boy died and a second was revived and taken to a North Carolina hospital after they were pulled from a cruise ship swimming pool off the state’s coast Monday, officials confirmed, though they offered few additional details Tuesday.
Several spokespeople for Norwegian did not return messages Tuesday. The line said on its Facebook page that the Norwegian Breakaway’s emergency medical team responded to a report that the children were unresponsive on the ship’s pool deck and quickly administered CPR.
“After extensive efforts, the younger child could not be revived,” the Facebook post said. “We extend our deepest sympathies to the family during this extremely difficult time and are providing full assistance and support.”
