Young girl falls from Carnival cruise balcony, is airlifted to hospital

A 3-year-old girl is in stable condition after falling from the balcony of the Carnival cruise ship late last week.

The incident took place on Friday afternoon aboard the Carnival Breeze, which was heading back to Galveston, Texas, following a cruise to the Bahamas. According to KTRK , the toddler was out on her family’s stateroom balcony when she tumbled off and hit the outdoor deck below.

A helicopter dispatched by the U.S. Coast Guard’s District 7 arrived later in the evening to airlift the young girl to a hospital in Tampa, Fla. The Coast Guard has also confirmed that the girl had sustained injuries to her face during the fall, though it’s unclear how severe those injuries were.
