Electrician Crushed in Elevator Aboard Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Ship

There is a video at the link that has blood gushing down the elevator doors and creepy blood dripping sounds. Not in a place I can get it to post.

LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Fort Myers family said their Christmas cruise took a horrifying turn, showing Four in Your Corner the video and photos of a bloody mystery.

The family boarded the Carnival Ecstasy on Christmas Day for a spur of the moment trip, and said the first two nights of their cruise were everything they thought it would be.

But they describe the last night as a scene out of a horror movie.

Matt Davis and his wife Susan showed Fox 4 pictures and video of what looked to be blood pouring out of the top of the elevator as the doors were struggling to open and close. "To look and see the elevator with just blood coming down like a sheet, and not stopping... it was a real life scene of The Shining," Matt Davis said.

The couple said time stood still, it sounded like a rainstorm, and they could smell the blood.

They said they were heading to dinner on the 10th floor of the ship Sunday night when they saw the horrifying scene. "One of the crew people from Carnival was trying to get people to go back to the restaurant," Matt Davis said.

You can hear a woman shouting "Come inside please!" in the video the couple gave Fox 4.

The couple said a man was inside the elevator, and had to run through the blood that was coming down to get out.

Forty five minutes later, Matt said the scene was sectioned off with a sign by the elevator reading "Sorry, but I'm not working at the moment."

He said a waiter told him an electrician got hurt, and later a Carnival supervisor said he passed away. In the video, you can hear a woman saying "the man was working on the elevator up there."

"A crew member or somebody was inside or behind that wall when the elevator came down, and I don't know what happened, but something terrifying happened," Matt Davis said.

Fox 4 reached out to Miami-Dade Police, which is investigating the death. A spokesperson said in an email the victim is 66-year-old Jose Sandoval Opazo, an electrician aboard the ship.

She also said he died Sunday night, and the cause is still under investigation.

"I couldn't wait to get off the ship. I just wanted to get off," Matt Davis told Four in Your Corner's Lisa Greenberg.

Fox 4 reached out to Carnival Headquarters to learn more about the cleaning process and if the ship is still being used, but have yet to hear back.

The family said Carnival offered to pay for the family to go to three counseling sessions.

No way, Jose.

When working with electricity , ALWAYS make sure you turn the breaker switch off BEFORE you start messing with it. Sounds like he turned an elevator into a juicer.

Horrible way to die.

I wish they had shown the video without any cutaways, though!

And why is this news program styled like Entertainment Tonight?

It seems like cruise ships are a death trap.

Yeah, "lock out, tag out", right? So many accidents shown on dr could have been prevented.

Eh, I've been on over a dozen, I enjoy them.

I'm just trying to figure out how this happened. The top of the elevators have a small area to avoid crushing people above. The floor they are on has at least 2 floors below it, but the blood is running from the top. Combine that with the door seeming stuck on the sides... I guess maybe he was on the side of the shaft and it ground him up on the side? Doesn't explain the blood over the top of the door though.
