While playing with her grandfather, Chloe Wiegand († 18 months) fell to her death from the cruise ship Freedom of the Seas.
The girl fell 45 meters and then hit the concrete floor of the dock in San Juan Harbor, Puerto Rico.
Mother Kimberley had to watch as her daughter Chloe fell into the depths.
The Freedom of the Seas is one of the largest passenger ships in the world.
There is space for around 4400 people on board the cruise ship.
This story moved the world: Chloe Wiegand († 1) fell 45 meters to her death. Her grandfather Salvatore Anello let her fall out of the window of the cruise ship Freedom of the Seas in a port in Puerto Rico on July 7, 2019.
After a long dispute between the shipping company Royal Caribbean Cruises and the family, the grandfather gave in: Anello pleaded guilty to the Supreme Court of the Puerto Rican capital San Juan on Thursday morning, reports “El Vocero”.
Confession via the Internet
However, the confession of guilt was made digitally, since Anello is currently in his home in the USA. Anello previously said he first hugged his granddaughter, but then released one arm as both reached out to knock on the glass.
The shipping company recently published a video in which you can see grandfather leaning out of the window, where the accident happened a little later. The man should therefore have known that the window was open, the shipping company argued.
Grandfather protested his innocence for a long time
Anello, however, initially insisted that he assumed that the window was closed. “I thought there was a window,” he says in interviews. The family sued Royal Caribbean Cruises. The charge: negligence. The window on the 11th floor in the children’s play area should not have been open.
Anello is charged with negligent homicide – and now faces up to three years in prison. Nevertheless: his family continues to support him. The confession is in the best interests of the family, the lawyer told “Mirror”. (szm)
