Puerto Rico-Cruise Ship Death story

Chloe's parents, Alan and Kimberly Wiegand, said they didn't understand why there would be an open window so high up on the ship and the cruise line created "a tremendous safety hazard that cost our child her life".

"Essentially her grandfather lifts her up and puts her on a railing and where he thinks that there is glass there because it's clear, but it turns out there was no glass there", Winkleman told the Today show.

A toddler from IN, the daughter of a vacationing police officer, fell to her death Sunday, July 7, 2019 from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that was docked IN Puerto Rico. That's why her grandfather sat her on a wooden rail in front of what he apparently thought was a wall of enclosed glass windows.

"He was extremely hysterical".

Attorney Michael Winkleman said in a statement that the child's death was "a tragic accident", and that the family, who is from the northern in community of Granger, will be filing a lawsuit against Royal Caribbean "very soon".

"Chloe wanted to bang on the glass like she always did at her older brothers' hockey games", he said in a July statement.

Police hold him responsible for his granddaughter's death, but the family blames the cruise line for the tragedy, CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan reports.

Anello is due to appear in court on November 20. Winkleman said that Chloe's grandfather was unaware that it was open.

"I didn't know that she went out a window", she added. "[Chloe] was his best friend".

Alan said that Anello was "very distraught", to the point where you could "barely look at him without him crying".

Royal Caribbean "has still not given us the opportunity to view surveillance video they have of the incident", the attorney said.

"There are a million things that could've been done to make that safer", the "devastated" mum said.

A prosecutor in Puerto Rico said in a statement obtained by WSBT that Anello, the husband of the maternal grandmother, "negligently exposed the girl "through one of the windows on the 11th floor of the ship" and the girl fell from 115 feet".
