Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On February - 25 - 2009

Medical experts at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital are assessing and treating the injured guests from Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Summit who were involved in a bus crash on the Caribbean island of Dominica Monday.

The 14 tourists were transported from Dominica’s Princess Margaret Hospital to South Florida yesterday onboard three air ambulances and one additional aircraft chartered by Celebrity cruises. A hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday that five of the tourists were listed in critical condition, two in serious, four in fair and one in good condition. Miami television stations are reporting that the injuries range from broken bones to internal injuries to cuts and bruises.

In a statement issued after Tuesday’s bus crash, Celebrity Cruises said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with our injured guests and their families. We’ll continue to do our very best to assist them in the aftermath of this unfortunate incident.”

    I witnessed another car crash on Domimica only week before this one. A couple from our ship, the Carnival Victory, fell off the road and down a steep embankment in their RENTAL car. Both were transported to the local hospital on Dominica but we were unable to get any additional information on their condition.

    We also took a hair-raising 6 hour trip into the interior on a sanctioned excursion that wss like a Disney ride. The roads are in terrible shape and everyone drives too fast!! Be forewarned…Dominica is a very beautiful island but it is not yet ready for primetime tourism.

    My sister and her boyfriend were 2 of the 5 critically injured in this accident. My sister is still recovering and her boyfriend will never walk again. Please keep them in your prayers.
