Five crew members died during a lifeboat safety drill on a cruise ship in Spain Sunday.
During a safety drill a lifeboat that was being used fell 65 feet into a port in the Canary Islands after a supporting cable snapped, The Wall Street Journal said.
The lifeboat capsized trapping eight crew members underneath. After an alarm was sounded, the captain called for divers to rescue the crew members; in the accident five were killed and three were injured and taken to a hospital in La Palma, The Miami Herald said.
Thompson Cruises confirmed that the three injured aboard the Thompson Majesty ship were not badly hurt, The Wall Street Journal said.
