Attorney, Michael Winkleman, of which the Indiana family sues Royal Caribbean over the death of a child Series ” (Wiegand, who fell out of an open vessel-window in July, and it is the charge of the cruise liner has to lie about how the incident proved the progress of a recent inspection of the vessel, it proves to be.

ROYAL CARIBBEAN CLAIMS HIS GRANDFATHER KNEW THAT THE WINDOW WAS OPEN TO A TODDLER’S FATAL FALL

Winkleman said on Fox News, that explains that Chloe’s late grandfather, Salvatore Anello, who was holding the 18-month-old when she fell in his arms, while the ship was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and had no idea that it was, at the time of the tragedy.

“Frankly, we believe that since day one, and they have always been trying to get it to look like, and what they have said in court documents, was that, Sam could be seen walking in and leaning over the railing, off the side of the window. And that is not true. That is, it is simply factually incorrect. If you look at it, if you take the time to look at the pictures, and the reconstruction of what we have done, you will see that it is not possible,” Winkleman told Fox News.

“So, the reason why we are saying that it is physically impossible for him to do that, is that we are in fact just [tried] to do for my partner, for him to hit his head on the window,” he said. “It would have to have in order to get on his tippy toes on a railing, to where his feet were as […] more than seven inches above the ground. And that would only get his head in the glass. So to be able to go out of the window, you’d have to lean so far that you are at risk of falling. So, in essence, is that it is physically impossible to carry out. But more importantly, I think, is that it shows that it is the position that Royal Caribbean is, it is false.”

“The death of Chloe Wiegand, it is clearly a heart-rending tragedy that led to the prosecution of Chloe’s step-grandfather, a civil lawsuit brought by the Wiegand family of lawyers. Our position in the matter will be set forth in our Motion to Dismiss, which we are required by law to do so, in response to the civil suit. The motion was filed in Federal district Court in South Florida, and has been made available to the public,” Royal Caribbean said.
