Cameron Robbins remembered at private memorial service after tragic cruise incident
Hundreds of mourners gathered to remember the life of 18-year-old Cameron Robbins on Sunday, during a private memorial service held at the Broadmoor United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The University Lab School graduate was last seen jumping into shark-infested waters in the Bahamas on May 24 while on a pirate-themed “booze cruise” with fellow high school graduates. According to BRPROUD, the service was kept private, but loved ones could be seen entering the church to pay their respects.
Robbins was remembered for being a star baseball player, who battled through injuries and was known to pitch through broken ribs and separated shoulders. His family described him as loving his truck, country music, and being a big karaoke star. The teen had just returned from a fishing trip with his dad and brother before embarking on the post-graduation cruise aboard a ship called Blackbeard’s Revenge.
In a chilling video shared online, Robbins is seen swimming away from a buoy while what some viewers have said appear to be sharks swim around him before he disappeared from view. His parents expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support the family had received.
