Man Injures Eye on Carnival Jubilee

Friday, July 18, 2003
The U.S. Coast Guard medically evacuated an injured man from the cruise ship Carnival Jubilee early this morning about 120 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas.

A 25-year-old Indonesian man caught a cork with his eye after a semi-successful attempt at opening a champagne bottle. With the injured eye bleeding and unresponsive, Jubilee contacted the Coast Guard at about 11 p.m. for assistance. In response, Coast Guard Air Station Houston launched an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter, which transported the man to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

The Coast Guard recommends all people use caution and aim corks away from eyes when opening high-pressure bottles.
