One crew member died and four others were injured when a training exercise aboard the world's largest cruise ship went awry.
CNN is reporting that a 42-year-old Filipino national was killed when a lifeboat attached to Royal Caribbean International's Harmony of the Seas fell approximately 33 feet into the water while the ship was docked in Marseille, France.
The four other crew members are currently receiving treatment at a hospital. According to the BBC, at least two of the hospitalized crew members sustained life-threatening injuries.
It's unclear what caused the lifeboat to become detached. However, all five crew members were reportedly onboard the lifeboat when it fell.
Royal Caribbean confirmed the death in a statement, saying "we are sorry to share the sad news that a crew member aboard Harmony of the Seas has died of injuries suffered during a lifeboat drill conducted while docked at the port of Marseille, France."
"Four other crew members received medical treatment in the same incident," the company added. "We are keeping our colleagues and their families in our thoughts and prayers."
Measuring nearly 1,200 feet long, the Harmony of the Seas is currently the world's largest cruise liner and is capable of carrying more than 8,000 passengers and crew members.
The ship, which boasts a slew of amenities, including a casino, theater and nearly two dozen swimming pools, completed its maiden voyage this past May and is scheduled to begin regular seven-night sailings to the eastern and western Caribbean this coming fall.
It remains to be seen whether Tuesday's accident will impact the ship's operation.
