(CNN)A crew member on a Caribbean cruise ship died while working on an elevator, the company said. Passengers aboard the Carnival Ecstasy witnessed part of the horrifying incident Sunday evening in which blood poured down the front of the elevator. Matt Davis and his wife were on their way to dinner when they came across the gory scene. "To look and see the elevator with just blood coming down like a sheet, and not stopping ... it was a real life scene of 'The Shining,'" Davis told CNN affiliate WFTX, referring to the 1980 horror movie. As the couple looked on aghast at the flowing blood, which they said sounded like a rainstorm, a crew member was trying to usher people back inside the restaurant. 'Something terrifying happened' Davis and his wife took photos and video of what they saw on their cell phones. In one clip they shared with WFTX, a man can be heard shouting, "No, that can't be right! No, that's not possible!" The elevator was eventually sealed off, Davis said, with a sign that read, "Sorry, but I'm not working at the moment." He said crew members told him that an electrician had been working on the elevator. "A crew member or somebody was inside or behind that wall when the elevator came down, and I don't know what happened, but something terrifying happened," he told WFTX. A spokesman for Carnival, Vance Gulliksen, told CNN that a crew member died Sunday on the ship while working on an elevator.
