A family trip turned into a nightmare after a toddler tragically died after plunging 150 feet from a cruise ship. The 1-year-old girl allegedly slipped from her grandfather’s arms and fell from the 11th floor of the Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas ship. The toddler is believed to have fallen onto the concrete below while the ship docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

She was immediately rushed to the hospital around 4:30 p.m. but was pronounced dead minutes after arrival. Police are currently conducting an investigation and are reviewing CCTV of the cruise ship, as well as interviewing other passengers who witnessed the incident at the time.
