LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man who plunged to his death from a balcony on a Carnival cruise ship last week has been identified as a father from Brownsburg, Indiana, which is northwest of Indianapolis.
According to a report on FOX59, it happened Nov. 15, as Brian Rice and his wife, Diane, were returning from a six-night Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Horizon ship when he fell from a balcony onto a deck.
The ship's medical crews responded, but Rice died from his injuries.
Miami-Dade police told FOX9 that homicide detectives responded to the ship when it docked Saturday for a death investigation. A medical examiner determined Rice died from blunt force injury, and ruled it as accidental; however, the police investigation is ongoing.
At this time, it's unclear how Rice fell.
