Charleston Port Of Call For Mercury And Ill Passengers

Charleston Port Of Call For Mercury And Ill Passengers

Charleston boat accident lawyers have just learned that the cruise ship, the Mercury, which departed from Charleston’s port the week of February 15, 2010, is having problems. The Caribbean bound ship has reported that over 300 passengers aboard the ship have become ill. The symptoms that one-sixth of the passengers share include; stomach cramps, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. There is no word yet if their injuries were caused by negligence.

This is not the way the passengers intended on spending their gorgeous Caribbean vacation. The Mercury’s onboard medical clinic has been overwhelmed with the large number of sick passengers. In fact it has been so overwhelmed that the ship has arranged for another doctor and nurse to come aboard at the ship’s stop in the British Virgin Island St. Kitts.

Samples of the virus have been given to medical scientists in Puerto Rico for testing. Hopefully, scientists can test and evaluate the samples in a timely manner to give passengers and cruise staff some answers.
