A woman has plunged to her death on the RMS Queen Mary, the legendary (and haunted) ocean liner permanently docked in Long Beach. The accident happened at approximately 8:00 pm last night as the woman was leaving a bar located onboard the ship with her husband.
The woman was reportedly seen climbing on a railing prior to the fall and initial reports have indicated that the she was likely intoxicated at the time of the accident. Reuters has reported that the woman’s husband and a crewmember jumped in after her and were found swimming in the water when officers arrived.
Besides once being a former troopship during WWII, and at one time the flagship of one of the cruise industry’s most legendary companies, Cunard Line, the Queen Mary is said be teaming with paranormal activity. Stories of hearing children crying and splashing in the pool areas are frequent. In 1966, an engineer was crushed by a watertight door in the engine room during a fire drill, and his ghost still haunts the ship to today. So, was this just an unfortunate accident or does the legend of the Queen Mary hauntings continue to grow?
