Monarch of the Seas returns to port after toddler falls from balcony

22 Dec 2012

Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas was forced to return to Port Canaveral hours after it left port because of a severe injury to a one year old.

Monarch of the Seas had initially left Port Canaveral at 4:30pm to head to the Bahamas when a 1-year-old crawled through an 11th floor railing and fell to a balcony one deck below.

At 7:30 p.m. the child was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando.

There was no word on the child's condition.
