LAST UPDATED: 09:00 a.m. HST, Feb 01, 2014

An 87-year-old Utah man died Friday after sustaining a head injury four days earlier aboard a cruise ship off Hawaii island, Honolulu police said.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office identified the man as James C. Harte of Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Harte, who was a passenger, fell and hit his head about 10:30 p.m. Monday, police said. On Thursday, Harte was taken to an Oahu hospital for further treatment. He died about 10:30 p.m. Friday. Police do not suspect foul play.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

This is a woefully terse story, emblematic of lazy reporting. Which cruise ship? Cruising from where to where? The deceased sustained a "head injury" -- how? Did he faint and fall, or did he slip or trip and fall, or did something accidentally fall and strike his head? (None of those would be considered "foul play.") News stories such as this one should be filed under "WHY BOTHER?"

The SA needs a jolt of testosterone. This sort of cowardly story belongs in a North Korean newspaper.

more like they need to fire the ones with testosterone altogether. Unfortunately, I've been on cruise ships with very elderly, extremely frail people on board. They are accidents waiting to happen. They aren't stable walking on land and yet they expect to get around on a ship in the open sea. spooky
