Another day, another cruise ship death as a family reunion turns to tragedy. 22 year old Richard Mulloy from Malden, MA fell 40 feet from the upper deck of the Norwegian Majesty cruise ship around 1:15 AM Wednesday. According to reports, Richard Mulloy fell from the fifth deck to the first while waiting for an elevator trying to get to a disco on the ship. According to the Bermuda police the incident is under investigation; however, they believe it was just a terrible accident. Accidents seem to be occurring far too often these days.
The cruise was a family reunion trip that had been planned for years.
“The whole family organized it, figured it out and saved the time to put it aside,” said Richard Mulloy Jr., father of the young man who had returned from a night out on St. George’s Island when he fell from the fifth deck to the first deck of the Norwegian Majesty cruise ship
