  • ORLEANS     Woman missing after falling overboard off Carnival Triumph     
       Search and rescue operations are currently underway

A woman aboard a Carnival Cruise Line ship died Friday after falling several decks from the balcony of her cabin.

The Miami-based cruise company has not identified either of the victims, but said rescue efforts were underway for the 44-year-old woman who plunged off the Carnival Triumph into the Gulf of Mexico late Sunday. One cruise passenger, Megan Burdewick, reportedly texted her mother that passengers "weren't [allowed] off the boat to Freeport until they investigated it" and that personnel were "taking pictures [and everything]", according to The Miami Herald. On Friday morning, a woman on a four-day cruise on the Carnival Elation from Jacksonville died after falling from her stateroom balcony.

"The ship's medical team responded immediately, but, unfortunately, she passed away", Gulliksen said in a statement to the Herald.

The name of the woman was not released. While the ship is now moving toward its next port of call, passengers aboard the ship report that the Captain informed them the Mexican authorities would continue the search. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the deceased and her family".

The Triumph was released from search and rescue operations and continued its route to Cozumel, Mexico, officials said Monday.

Zion, who is from Nassau, The Bahamas, was traveling with her brother, mother and her mother's boyfriend when she tragically died.
