MIAMI (October 14, 2013)--A 6-year-old boy has drowned in a pool on the Carnival Victory, the cruise line said Monday.

The ship was on the last leg of a four-day Caribbean cruise on Sunday when the boy drowned while at the pool area with other family members, the company said.

The ship arrived Monday morning at the Port of Miami.

The Miami-Dade Police Department identified the boy as Qwentyn Hunter of Winter Garden, Fla.

The boy was with his 10-year-old brother in the pool at the time of the drowning, authorities said.
