ROSEAU, Dominica (AP) -- Authorities on the eastern Caribbean island of Dominica say a 16-month-old boy from Italy has died in a car crash that injured several other cruise ship passengers.
Police Superintendent Richmond Valentine says the boy's parents were among the eight people injured in Thursday's crash. He says the parents are expected to recover.
The tourists were passengers aboard the MSC Cruises ship Orchestra. MSC has issued a statement saying a total of five Italians and two Brazilians were injured. The company says the passengers were part of an onshore visit that they independently booked through a third party.
MSC Cruises says that it has a support team helping those injured and that other passengers have returned to the ship.
