Boat accident off Davis Islands claims life of 57-year-old man

A boat accident off the shores of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida left one person dead and five other people with injuries that were not disclosed to the public. The victim that lost his life was a 57-year-old man. The survivors were hanging onto a buoy in the water before Tampa Police air patrol dropped life preservers for them. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, along with other authorities, are investigating the crash.

Wash your hands, avoid drunkenness on cruise ships

An Australian woman fell from a cruise ship in the South Pacific in April, and the news has made some tourists a bit squeamish about whether to consider stepping onboard for a family vacation or romantic getaway. Have no fear. Falls from cruises ships are rare, so cruise ship getaways continue to be safe vacations.

Cruise ship crashes into Honduran dock

It feels like a story like the one we are to report on occurs every month or so, and unfortunately here we are yet again. The story in question occurred at a port in Honduras, where a 902-foot cruise liner that is capable of carrying nearly 2,700 people crashed into the rocks near the port after it approached at an unsafe speed.

Commercial fishermen face unique threats

Off the coast of Florida, you aren't going to find the cast of "Deadliest Catch" or similar crab fisherman on large vessels. The grueling work depicted in that show -- where groups of fishermen brave frigid temperatures, battering waves, and other incredibly dangerous conditions -- is not a common sight off the coast of Florida. However, we aren't trying to dismiss the difficult work that commercial fisherman perform around Florida.
