Last week, a cruise ship passenger was found dead on board an American cruise ship after he fell asleep while in his sleep.
His family has filed a lawsuit against the company for failing to take him to an emergency room.
The death of Christopher Pacheco, who was 46 years old, was ruled a suicide, but his family has appealed.
On Tuesday, an Ohio coroner’s office ruled the death a homicide.
Pacheko’s death was the eighth cruise ship fatality on record in the United States since 2000, according to the Cruise Ship Safety Foundation.
In 2016, a passenger on an American Cruise ship was found to have drowned after he jumped off a ship.
The passenger had been asleep in his berth and jumped when the ship crew realized he had fallen asleep, according the company.
Pescarina said his organization would not be commenting on the pending lawsuits.
A spokesperson for Carnival said the company does not comment on pending litigation.
