A woman is suing Carnival cruise lines after falling overboard on a ship headed for Jamaica. According to MyFOX DFW, Sarah Kirby claims to have been encouraged to continue drinking by a Carnival bartender, who also gave Kirby and friends casino coupons in exchange for buying drinks. After becoming very intoxicated, Kirby fell seven stories into the water, hitting a life boat on the way. Kirby claims it took the ship’s captain an hour and a half to turn the boat around and despite her serious injuries, was not airlifted to a Miami hospital. Her lawsuit is targeted at the cruise line and four individuals.
