Police are investigating the apparent drowning of an American cruise ship passenger off at Disney’s private island in the Bahamas - Castaway Cay in the Abacos. The incident happened on Thursday afternoon, and a lot of details are not yet known about the situation.
According to reports by the Tribune, on Thursday afternoon, a 38–year-old man from New York man who was a passenger onboard a cruise ship moored at Castaway Cay drowned while swimming.
As of now, reports from police are that he is alleged to have drowned while swimming in the area. Disney is known for having trained lifeguards at its private islands, at least for areas where children swim.
The Disney Cruise Line has already dealt with a number of situations in 2015, but none ended up being quite as serious as a drowning.
Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island in the Bahamas that
only has stops from the four ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Other cruise ships are not allowed to dock there.
