Cruise Ship Returns To Florida After Child Is Injured

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A cruise ship headed to the Bahamas had to return to port in central Florida after a young child was injured in a fall aboard ship.

Royal Caribbean officials say a 14-month-old from India fell Friday aboard the Monarch of the Seas. The ship left Port Canaveral on Friday for a Bahamas cruise.

Cruise line officials say the child initially received medical treatment on board the ship but needed to be hospitalized. The ship turned around and returned to Florida, where the child was taken to a hospital.

No additional information about the child’s injuries was released.

Royal Caribbean officials say Monarch of the Seas is sailing a three-night itinerary to CocoCay and Nassau, Bahamas.
