Passenger died due to lack of medical assistance in Roatan
Edmond Rucker, who died after diving off a pier in Roatan, was pulled ashore and given CPR by people on the beach, while medical personnel didn't arrive for almost an hour on March 15, when the 'Allure of the Seas' on a week-long Royal Caribbean cruise. People— including children and teenager s —were jumping off a structure that was apparently once used as a zip line platform. Rucker was the first person that actually dove in. It took a second for him to come up, a little bit longer than normal. He wasn't underwater very long, but when he came up, it looked like he was just floating. The people that were on the platform waiting to jump after him, started panicking like something wasn't right. Three men swam out and brought Rucker to the beach and performed CPR, while there was no medical help at all It was at least 50 minutes before a medical person got there. Due to the extremely poor response time and lack of emergency personnel he did not make it. Rucker was covered with towels and umbrellas to shield his body. Rucker's body remained on the beach for at least four hours because employees of the Public Prosecutor's Office were on strike. His body was eventually put back on the 'Allure of the Seas' to return to the U.S. On May 21, a Royal Caribbean spokesperson said: "While ashore in Roatan, Honduras, a guest sailing on board Allure of the Seas sadly passed away. Royal Caribbean International is providing support and assistance to the guest's loved ones at this time." A GoFundMe page has also been set up to help the Rucker family with funeral and other costs, which has collected more than $28,000 in donations.
