Teen Dies after Falling onto Pier from Harmony of the Seas

A 16 year-old teen fell from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship last week, plunging to his death.

The boy, who was identified as Laurent Mercer of the French islands Wallis and Futuna, was reportedly trying to scale onto his state room’s balcony from the balcony of a state room next to his. He apparently had locked himself out of this room and was trying to gain access to it. Mercer slipped and fell, hitting the pier below.
