A 6-year-old boy died aboard a Carnival Cruise Lines ship, drowning in one of its pools this weekend while at sea vacationing, according to The Associated Press.

Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement that the Carnival Victory ship was on the last leg of a four-day Caribbean cruise on Sunday when the incident occurred. The boy was at the pool area with other family members when he died.

The Carnival ship arrived Monday morning at Port Miami.

The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating and identified the boy as Qwentyn Hunter of Winter Garden, Fla. Investigators say the boy was with his 10-year-old brother in the Carnival pool at the time. Passengers immediately pulled the boy from the water and began CPR, but the child was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the Carnival drowning appears to be accidental and foul play is not suspected.

“Poor family has to go on vacation with their child and have to come back without them, it’s not fair, it’s not fair,” another cruise passenger who witnessed the incident told CBS Miami.
