    Unhappy Tourist dies ...beach @ Hilton.........a cruise ship passenger

    I got a message earlier from my friend.

    A tourist from Carnival Breeze........ I then read more on Awe24 and apparently the gentleman was a diabetic.

    Sad


    My friend wrote.....A cruise guest from Carnival Breeze was in the beach by the Hilton. He was found floating face down and blue. Bystanders, beach police and ambulance tried to an hour to save him. His family was also present.

    Found out more. Apparently the man that died had recently had bypass surgery and was also a diabetic and the cruise he was on was a celebration cruise of his recovery. There were 20 family members at the beach with him. It's such a sad story

    So sad but I'm glad he got to enjoy a little bit of Paradise. On Monday one of my coworkers told me about her friend who died at his desk at work.

    My wife and I were on the beach further towards Gilligans when this all went down. My wife ventured down, being the good samaritan RN that she is to see what was going on. When she got there there were already visitors performing CPR even before the Police showed up. One couple in particular took charge of the immediate situation. They were both trained in advanced emergency tactics. All of the tourists that had the medical training jumped right in and tag teamed the CPR. My wife assisted where she could. Two people did a sprint for the defibilator in the Hilton Lobby (seems the police do not have them as equipment but EMT's do). To say this unfortunate human being had all the right people at the right time may be an understatement. The vendor of the beach umbrellas also closed them all up for ease of access when the EMT's arrived. The people who were on vacation were back to doing what they do best in a split second and I applaud each and everyone of them even though their actions did not result in a favorable outcome.
    My condolences to the family of the deceased.
