Carnival Cruise Line has honored two heroes who jumped into the water to save a passenger in a wheelchair who accidentally fell off the pier into the water in St. Thomas.
Randolph Donovan and Kashief Hamilton, two local entertainers, were brought on board Carnival Fascination for a ceremony to honor the two men.
St. Thomas officials were also on board to pay tribute to these two selfless gentlemen who immediately jumped into the water and, with the assistance of members of Carnival’s security team, were able to return the guest ashore. The guest was seen by the Carnival Fascination’s medical team and did not sustain injuries.
Carnival Cruise Line posted the following statement about the ceremony: “On behalf of the entire Carnival family, our most sincere thanks and appreciation to these individuals for their incredible efforts in assisting this guest.”
