From the remember your limits department:

The AP reports that a 7-year-old boy traveling aboard Majesty of the Seas was killed while ashore in the Bahamas on Sunday. He was riding on a jet ski with his mother when he fell off and somehow received a fatal head injury. He is thought to perhaps have been struck by the jet ski being ridden by another family member. (Royal Caribbean had no connection to the accident other than the family was passengers aboard the ship.)

Often the people injured in these incidents are engaged in sports or activities in which they do not regularly participate, and it usually seems they've forgotten that these activities do carry an element of danger. In the interest of safety when ashore, try to do a little less and have a little less exhilarating experience when ashore. We'd like all our readers to return home safely and continue to read CND.
