    “Harmony of the Seas” tragic accident during a security drill in Marseille

    The accident happened when one of the ship's life boats with five people on board became detached during a “simple security drill” while a stopover in Marseille.

    One person has been killed and four others left seriously injured in Marseille after an accident on board the Harmony of the Seas, the world's largest cruise liner. The fatal accident comes just three months after the cruise liner hit the high seas for its much-hyped inaugural voyage. The victim was from the Philippines and was aged 42-years-old. The other victims were three Filipinos and an Indian man.
