FBI investigating suspicious death on board
The FBI started investigating a suspicious death that happened aboard the 'Carnival Sunshine'. The crew was made aware of an unresponsive woman on Feb. 27, 2023. The staff attempted life-saving measures, but the woman was pronounced dead on the ship. Once the ship berthed in Charleston on March 4, members of the FBI Evidence Response Team responded in the morning to conduct an investigation into the death. Both the deceased and her husband were debarked in Nassau, and Bahamian authorities have already investigated the circumstances and were conducting an autopsy, while Carnival was fully cooperating. The authorities were continuing to investigate the incident.
Medevac off Port Canaveral
A 58-year-old man who was experiencing chest pains was medevaced by helicopter from the 'Carnival Sunshine' about 100 miles from Port Canaveral to the Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne on Oct 14, 2022. After receiving the emergency call, the Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk flew over the Atlantic Ocean and arrived at the scene about 10 a.m. The passenger with chest pains, his spouse and a nurse were hoisted into the helicopter. The medevac did not impact the 'Carnival Sunshine'’s schedule, including the ship’s arrival to its homeport in Charleston, S.C. on Oct 15 morning.
