    (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.

    If you're smart you'll never go on a cruise ship. If anything bad happens to you the cruise company isn't responsible.

    I've never understood the draw...you're trapped in a small room on a giant boat with a few thousand fat Midwesterners for a week...you then have a time limit at port which are all basically the same. It must be the cost right? I love tropic vacations, but I want to do what I want when I want.

    My husband likes them because it's the only kind of trip we can take in which he can not be reached by work. Out at sea, cell phones don't work.

    Took my Mom out to lunch for her birthday this afternoon. She suggested we take a family vacation and go on a cruise. Sounds like the worst idea I've ever heard. I've heard too many horror stories - this one being the worst. :scared:
