Teen Dies After Falling From Cruise Ship, Landing on Pier

Officials say a teenager from the South Pacific died after falling from a cruise ship onto a pier in Haiti.

The Broward Medical Examiner’s Office on Monday announced 16-year-old Laurent Mercer’s death. He’d been on a seven-day Caribbean trip with his family when he died Friday. Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas was docked at Labadee, Haiti. Officials say Mercer apparently didn’t have his room card, attempted to enter his eighth-floor room from an adjacent balcony, but lost his footing and fell.
