The British company Thomson Cruises is still investigating what happened on their cruise in the Canary Islands, that left 5 dead in a lifeboat drill accident.
According to a report from U.S. News, three crew members were also injured during the lifeboat drill. One person has been discharged and the hospital is expecting the other two to be discharged soon.
Thomson Cruises has expressed their condolences to the families of the victims.
"Our thoughts are with the families of those involved. We are working closely with the ship owners and managers, to determine exactly what has happened and provide assistance to those affected by the incident. We are also working closely with all relevant authorities and will be co-operating fully with their investigations," reads the note.
A company spokesman stated that they will provide more details as they become available.
Meanwhile, the British Foreign Ministry said it has been informed and will investigate the accident, that left 5 dead and three others injured when a lifeboat fell into the sea during a mock rescue mission while the ship was docked at the Canary island's capital, Santa Cruz.
For reasons still unknown, the lifeboat fell from a height of thirty meters with eight crew members on board.
The 5 dead included three Indonesians, a Filipino and a Ghanaian, while among the wounded were two Greeks and a Filipino.
An estimated 2,000 passengers were traveling on the cruise ship, neither of which was affected by the event.
The ship is called the "Thomson Majesty", and usually operates cruises around the Canaries and Madeira.
