Thomson Holidays


We’re aware of the incident on-board Thomson Majesty today involving eight crew members. Sadly there have been five crew fatalities and three crew members have been injured. Our thoughts are with their family and friends and we’re doing everything we can to support them at this sad time

The Canary Islands, as seen from space


Five people have been killed and three other injured after a lifeboat fell into the sea from a cruise ship while it was docked in the port of Santa Cruz in the Canary Islands, Spanish authorities say.

Three Indonesians, a Filipino and a Ghanaian were killed, the BBC reports.

The injured were all men, two aged 30, and another, a Greek national, was 32-years-old, a government statement said, citing the islands' Emergency and Security Coordination Center.

The accident on the British-registered MS Thomson Majesty occurred during a routine safety drill, when the cable crane of the lifeboat snapped, trapping all 8 crew members under the hull of the small vessel. The boat fell more than 60 feet to the water.

A rescue helicopter and the Volunteer Fire Department of La Palma, with a 14-person diving, were all dispatched to the scene. Additional local rescue services including ambulances, nurses, and physicians, as well as local and national police were also present.

The UK Foreign Office said it was "urgently investigating" the incident. No passengers were believed to have been involved in the accident.

A spokesman for the ship's operator Thomson Cruises said the company was aware of the incident, but gave no further details, Spanish media reports.
The Malta-flagged vessel arrived at the port on Sunday morning.
