A Carnival Cruise ship was forced to return to Galveston Monday after a girl fell down a flight of stairs.

KTRK ABC 13 in Houston says the 3-year-old girl was posing for family photos on the ship when she somehow slipped through the rail and fell from the 14th to the 12th deck.

A Carnival Cruise Line spokesperson said medical personnel took the girl to the ship's medical center for evaluation, and from there, a decision was made to return back to shore and transfer the child to a hospital, according to a story posted on

The spokesperson said the girl was alert and stable at the time she was transported.
