FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida. (WBNG) — A military plane touched down at a Florida airport with its passengers in need of immediate medical care after a bus crash in the Bahamas, officials say.
According to CBS Miami, a military C-130 plane landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Monday afternoon.
An airport communications official told CBS Miami the plane carrying four people came from the Bahamas, and the people on board were on a cruise excursion when the crash happened.
“This morning, a shore excursion bus with 32 guests from Carnival Ecstasy was involved in an accident near Rock Sound, Eleuthera (The Bahamas), which is 20 minutes north of Princess Cays,” a statement from Carnival Cruise Lines reads.
28 other guests were cleared to return to the cruise after being seen at a medical clinic. The four guests who returned to Florida on the military plane are being airlifted for treatment at a hospital.
At least one person is reported to have paralysis on the right side of their body.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
